Florida Main Street Resource Team

HOLY FAMILY SENIOR CENTER, 203 Dr. Frederic Humphries, Jr. Street, hosted the FLORIDA MAIN STREET RESOURCE TEAM.  On Thursday, November 15, from 5 - 6:30 PM, a reception, open to the public, was held and the Resource Team delivered a public presentation sharing ideas and recommendations.  
From November 13 to November 15, the Florida Main Street Resource Team visited Apalachicola examining information about our beautiful community and checking on our local Main Street program.  Over the course of a three day visit, the Resource Team met with more than 25 community leaders and business owners.  The Team discussed ideas with the Main Street Board and committees and finally, defined and suggested a strategy making best use of the community's resources. 
Team members do a significant amount of background research before the visit begins and, therefore, come prepared to make use of every minute. The Resource Team works together to develop a comprehensive set of recommendations following the four points of the Main Street approach to downtown revitalization.
Each team member focuses on only one of the four points; Organization, Economic Development, Promotion or Design.  The Team then shape all the observations and recommendations into a comprehensive strategy for action. The Teams purpose is to help develop strategies to implement the activities the local program has already identified as important.
Historic Apalachicola Main Street members are looking forward to a written report to share in January. For more information, please call 855-APALACH.
