As a Texas Main Street City, Elgin is focused on revitalizing the heart of the community through the Main Street Approach.
Economic Development in the context of historic preservation makes this growing, dynamic downtown district flexible and a variety of resources and programs are available to support your future investment.
Elgin Texas was designated a Historic District in 1991 for the downtown business area. Properties within this area require a review of any changes to be made to the exterior that are visible from the public right-of-way.
The Main Street program creates a vibrant, multiple-use, pedestrian-friendly environment in the traditional commercial district, thereby increasing economic vitality and saving historic buildings that make up the character and heritage of a community.
