The Cold Spring Harbor Main Street Association was first organized in 1996 as a not-for-profit corporation to begin laying the groundwork for planning and creating a Business Improvement District for the Historic Downtown area. In May 2001, the CSH Main Street Association became a publicly supported, charitable organization that seeks to provide a coordinating agency for projects and planning that encourages and benefits the restoration and preservation of the historic Main Street district and the character of the community. Additionally, through activities and operations, the organization seeks to broaden the opportunities for community members to share their concerns and create local solutions by providing a forum for ongoing involvement.
