About the Hopewell Downtown Partnership(HDP)
The HDP is a 501(c)(3) that was formed in 2007 after the flight of businesses and deterioration of the Downtown began to threaten the integrity of its historical structures and cultural relevance to the city and the surrounding areas. The HDP is on a mission to reverse this trend through implementing the Main Street Four Point Approach, a nationally trademarked model for revitalizing historic downtown districts and one of the most successful economic development models in the country.
