Design puts Main Street into top physical shape by capitalizing on assets — such as historic buildings and pedestrian-oriented streets; creating an inviting atmosphere (attractive window displays, well-managed parking areas, building improvements, street furniture, signs, sidewalks, lights and landscaping); instilling good maintenance practices; and enhancing the physical appearance by rehabilitating historic buildings, encouraging appropriate new construction, developing sensible design management systems, and long-term planning.

As Hugo Main Street is a part of the Colorado Main Street program, our business and building owners have free access to resources that can help from an historic preservation approach in addition to improving attracting customers into store front businesses throughout out Main Street District.
