Main Street Oakland County (MSOC) is our unique economic development program 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 county-wide Main Street® program.
