St. Claude Main Street is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, run by an all-volunteer board of community members, whose mission is to promote and support an economically thriving and culturally rich crossroads of historic communities.
We work within the larger St. Claude Cultural District, including the neighborhoods of St. Roch, Bunny Friend, Bywater, and the Faubourg Marigny, with specific focus on the development of St. Claude Avenue from Elysian Fields to Poland Ave.
The development of St. Claude Avenue continues to provide both challenges and inspiring opportunities for our diverse and historic community. As a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, St. Claude Main Street (St. Claude Main Street) is dedicated to supporting community and economic development along our designated portion of the corridor.
We believe that the best way to ensure equitable, sustainable and prosperous development is by engaging our community and empowering stakeholders to participate in revitalization efforts. We have a lot of work to do, but we cannot think of a better community work in and with. We look forward to seeing you on St. Claude Avenue soon.

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.
I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.
