The Delmarva Consortium's Downtown Revitalization Demonstration Project believes that downtown revitalization can provide a new source of economic qrowth to communities while they preserve their unique architectural and historical features and small town character. Smyrna, Delaware and three other Peninsula communities -- Middletown, Delaware, Snow Hill, Maryland and Onancock, Virginia -- were competitively selected by the Consortium. Key to their selection was evidence of a joint commitment by the local government and private sector to reverse the decline of their downtowns.
