In 2003 the Leucadia 101 Main Street was born. Residents, business owners, and property owners, many of whom historically did not “get along” or had differing social and political objectives decided to get to the table and create a volunteer based organization to help revitalize and restore our Historic Hwy 101 corridor and commercial district.
They decided to use the Main Street Model as it has proven to be a successful tool in revitalizing small towns in our 21st century. This model helps keep small towns relevant while placing a huge emphasis on historic preservation and community character. Inspired by the renaissance of local business, arts and culture in Downtown Encinitas those founding Leucadia Main Street board members looked to the Downtown Encinitas Main Street Association who had been providing leadership, insight and enthusiasm during that time of revitalization.
Stakeholders in the North Coast 101 Corridor recognized DEMA’s positive influence and decided to form Leucadia 101. Leucadia 101 has played a pivotol role in the implementation of the North 101 Corridor Specific Plan. Leucadia 101 also recognizes the need to address the drainage problems facing the region. Additionally, Leucadia 101 will also administer the Facade Improvement Program funded by the city.
Here are some of our major accomplishments over the past 10 years:
