The Main Street Coalition and the South Main Alliance (SMA) are working jointly to create a dramatic gateway to the corridor at Main Street and Loop 610 South that complements the allee of 500 oak trees linking the Loop to Kirby Boulevard, a Coalition sponsored project completed in 2001. The Coalition that has been chaired by E. D. Wulfe since its founding in 1997 with the purpose of creating Main Street as Houston’s signature boulevard. SMA (the South Main Center Association at that time) supported creating the Main Street Coalition in conjunction with Central Houston Inc., the Midtown Redevelopment Authority, the Greater Southeast Management District and other stakeholders in the Main Street Corridor. The Coalition has championed light rail in the corridor, urban design concepts, federally funded projects to enhance the pedestrian realm, and transit oriented development standards codified in ordinance for the expanded light rail system.
