The Hopewell Downtown Partnership (HDP) partners with local government, existing community and business organizations, as well as our richly diverse community at large, to develop and implement a program for a healthy, vibrant, and prosperous central downtown district.
HDP’s objectives are modeled after the Main Street Four Point Approachꜛ which includes the following components.
Strengthen the downtown district’s existing economic base, seek ways to introduce new types of commerce suitable for a downtown venue, and convert underutilized space into productive uses.
Promote the enhanced physical appearance of the district by capitalizing on its assets, rehabilitating historic buildings, encouraging supportive new construction, and beautifying the streetscape.
Market the downtown district’s unique qualities to potential customers, investors, new businesses, local citizens, and visitors through effective strategies and special events.
