New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 13, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Pag* SC    Herald-Ze/fung,    New    Braunfels    Jexas it /fem***mw- Wednesday, November 13,1985 Hobos Students in Nancy Bolle's fourth grade advanced reading class at Comal Elementary did a study on hobos and culminated their activities by dressing the part. The objective of the study was to write descriptive stories about themselves as hobos. Pictured, from left, are Chip Parrish, Amber Lehmann and April Smith. San Marcos named as a Main Street city At Its quarterly meeting in San Antonio on Oct. 28. the Texas Historical Commission designated the cities of Greenville. Palestine. Pittsburg, Pampa and San Marcos as the 1986 Texas Main Street cities These five communities will join a network of 35 cities working to revitalize their central business districts by developing the historic fabric of their downtowns. Each designated Main Street City hires a full-time Main Street Manager for a three-year period to coordinate the project, using private sector techniques of marketing, management and business developmentm, as well as historic ar chitectural design and landscape improvements. Local financial institutions lend support by setting up low-interest loan pools to encourage rehabilitation and reuse of existing historic buildings. The Texas Main Street Project of the Texas Historical Commission is primarily a technical assistance program rather than a grant program Many other state agencies, such as the Texas Economic Development Commission, the Texas Department of Community Affairs, the Texas Department of Agriculture, the Texas Tourist Development Agency and the Governor’s Office, provide additional assistance. A key success of the Main Street Project is the joining of historic preservation and economic development techniques to redevelop downtown as a viable marketplace. Since the beginning of the Texas Main Street Project in 1981, Main Street cities have seen a total of 1,020 downtown buildings rehabiliated. a net gain of 594 new businesses and 1,562 jobs and a private reinvestment in downtowns of more than $90,400,000.
