New London Main Street (NLMS)The Main Street program was developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation to promote, enhance and preserve America’s historic downtowns. Using a proven, comprehensive, incremental approach, the program builds on a community’s assets, public/private partnerships and action-oriented planning. New London Main Street is one of 1600 programs nationwide that receives strategic assistance from the Trust’s National Main Street Center in Washington, DC, and from the Connecticut Main Street Center in Hartford. It has been recognized nationally as one of the top 400 programs that meet the strictest criteria set by the national office.
The Mission of New London Main Street is to help plan and direct activities to preserve, develop and enhance the economic, social and cultural quality of life in downtown New London.

New London Landmarks works to promote preservation and historically sensitive development for the entire urban environment of New London. In the past 27 years Landmarks has been instrumental in saving key buildings such as the 1885 Union Railroad Station designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and the former Hygienic Restaurant, now the innovative center of New London¹s revived artistic community. Eleven New London neighborhoods are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places thanks to the efforts of Landmarks.

Downtown New London Association (DNLA)DNLA was started in the late 60's, a year or two prior to the City turning upper State Street into Captain's Walk, a pedestrian mall between Eugene O'Neill and Washington Street. Soon after, the Crystal Mall opened and much of the retail in downtown succumbed when customer volume was significantly reduced. Captain's Walk was removed and the street was returned to vehicular traffic sometime in the mid 1980's.
DNLA membership is $75.00 annually and is optional. Members are comprised of the owners of downtown area businesses. Funding is from dues and from DNLA organized events.
Economic development through sponsorship of events such as SailFest and the haunted house during Halloween.
