Videos About Tybee Island Main Street

Tybee Island is a community of collaboration. Volunteers are tremendous partners that have a positive impact in our small town. Check out Community Partners that work to preserve Tybee's community, commerce and culture throughout the year.

Since 2010, when the city became a nationally recognized Better Hometown (now known as Main Street) Community, many achievements have been accomplished based on the expressed needs of the community. Following is information about each of the 4-Point Approach(tm) that has provided a successful foundation for cities since 1977.

Main Street Overview


The overview video about Main Street was produced prior to the name change, but the information provided remains relevant. Committees work with the MS Board of Directors to make necessary improvements a reality. This structure minimizes confusion, avoids duplication and maintains good communication. Work plans set direction for committees and Board liaisons provide updates at the Board of Directors monthly meetings for review and approval as necessary. Committees typically meet once a month.

Each year, the Board of Directors host a retreat to review the previous year's works completed and plan for the next year based on public feedback. The 2015 - 2016 Work Plan (PDF) is available online, and the Main Street Committee would like to say thank you to those that provided feedback, from which the work plans were developed!
