About HLMS

Statement of Purpose

A diverse community of businesses & residents joining together to create a thriving shopping and dining destination.

Vision Statement

In 2028 the Hamilton-Lauraville commercial district will be the model for the Greater Baltimore region. We achieved this unique market position by building on existing assets such as our support for community agriculture, nearby parks & nature centers and businesses who were already exploring alternative energy sources in 2008. Although we are a commercial district, we are still a green community within the city – an alternative to the neighborhoods close to the harbor and suburban malls.

The Main Street Concept

Hamilton Lauraville Main Street utilizes the Four Point Approach. Coincidentally, the four points of the Main Street approach correspond with the four forces of real estate value, which are social, political, physical, and economic. We are not overseen by the National Main Street Center and do not receive funding from them. “The four-point approach works because it gives every person a chance to be listened to, giving each a platform to do what they think is vital and important for the downtown.” Julie Irish, Program Manager, Peabody Main Street, Kansas

The National Trust Main Street Center offers a comprehensive commercial district revitalization strategy that has been widely successful in towns and cities nationwide.
