Main Street Oakland County (MSOC) is our unique economic development program for downtowns, with a historic preservation philosophy and an emphasis on "sense of place." We help local government develop their downtowns as vibrant, successful districts that serve as the heart of their communities.

​Established under the leadership of Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson in 2000, MSOC is the nation's first and only county-wide Main Street program.

Our mission is to maximize the economic potential and to preserve the heritage and sense of place of Oakland County's historic downtowns and commercial district​s by encouraging and facilitating the use of the Main Street Four- Point Approach® that emphasizes comprehensive economic development within the context of historic preservation.
