Established in 2008, Orlando Main Street is an economic development program specifically targeted to provide technical assistance, training and staff support to urban commercial districts in the City of Orlando. The program is dedicated to empowering neighborhood business districts within the City to maintain, strengthen and revitalize their unique physical, historical and cultural characteristics. When a district participates in the revitalization effort, the entire community experiences renewed vitality and enhanced economic performance. Benefits of the Main Street program include:

  • Increasing sales and returning revenues to the district
  • Creating a positive and unique district image
  • Creating visually appealing and functional buildings
  • Attracting new businesses
  • Developing new housing opportunities
