Developed by a downtown manager and adopted by downtown organizations across the country, the Main Streets Database Template is designed to track the information you need, with layouts and reports that make sense for the way downtown programs work.


The Main Streets Database Template tracks all your contacts, businesses and properties in layouts that make sense for the way downtown organizations work. The template, based on many years of actual use in a Main Street program and discussions with numerous managers, can be used for many tasks, from very simple tasks (generating a contact list of board members) to extremely complicated ones (devising a fair assessment formula for a Business Improvement District). It can generate many helpful reports (from vacancies to volunteer hours), make zip-sorted mailing labels, and many other routine tasks—all from one easy-to-use database.


The template uses FileMaker Pro software, available from www.filemaker.com and, for 501(c)(3) organizations, from www.techsoup.org. You must own FileMaker Pro in order to use this template. We built the template using FileMaker Pro because we think itís great, user-friendly software. FileMaker Pro is available for both PC and Mac. Itís easy to import your existing data into FileMaker Pro and itís also easy to export from FileMaker Pro.

The template is for sale at $895 per copy. The template includes documentation and comes with free technical support and video trainings.

(Main Streets Database Template 3.3 users can upgrade for $400 and 4.0 users for $200. Data migration is included.)


City- or state-wide programs wishing to order multiple copies should contact us about customization with bulk purchase. Downtown Diva can also provide data preparation and importation for a fee.
