DDA Recognizes Entreprenurial Success with 2012 Milestone Awards

The Downtown Development Association recognizes businesses in downtown for their entrepreneurial success at five year intervals. Often great attention is given to the attraction of new business to a community neglecting the contribution and support existing businesses make to the local economy and community.

The Main Street Milestone Award acknowledges the significant contributions these small businesses make to create local jobs, increase the local tax base and improve the quality of life for local residents. It highlights and celebrates the individual entrepreneurial success stories that make Lincolnton such a great place to live, work, play and belong.
