City of DeRidder

The National Main Street Center encourages communities of all sizes through preservation based economic development.

The last decade has seen the City of DeRidder develop public spaces and walk-ability in its downtown area; in addition to planning and fostering community and cultural events downtown to enhance the quality of life of DeRidder citizens.

In recognition for their efforts, the City of DeRidder is one again designated as an accredited Main Street America Program for meeting the performance standards set by the National Main Street Center.

The city was honored last week at the annual conference of the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation in Baton Rouge.
