Picayune Main Street, Inc. invites you to join us, a group of volunteers, who participate in and work to advance a new vision for our community.

This vision encompasses renewed and thriving retail and service businesses, professional and government offices, and restaurants. Our vision includes downtown revitalization, a new walking track for citizens, new lighting for our downtown area, and comfortable benches for sitting. A downtown area people feel comfortable to live, work, shop and play.

You can help make this happen. Supporters and volunteers-people just like you. Main Street Members are people who may or may not live or work in Picayune’s downtown area, but they are people who envision a place that is attractive, thriving and lively, active seven days a week. A town you can be proud to show off to visiting family and friends.

Your membership in Picayune Main Street, Inc. will provide support for the operational work of the organization. This support helps provide Main Street with a staff and the cost of office expenses, sponsor events, and promotions. Membership fees also support the activities of our volunteer committees: Promotion, Design, Economic Restructuring and Special Events. Membership support is a critical piece of the public-private partnership “pie” that is making it possible to achieve Picayune Main Street goals.

Main Street goals are high. We plan to move quickly to make our community look and work better. We want those who walk around our town to feel safe and comfortable. We want to make sure our small retail and large companies thrive and expand. Main Street wants to attract new shops, services, housing, and entertainment opportunities.

Join Picayune Main Street, Inc. today to help provide Picayune's citizens and future citizens with a well-lit, active, clean and safe community.
