The City Council approved the funding application that would allow the Milk District to join the Orlando Main Street Program. We wrote about the possibility of the new addition back in June, HERE. To be considered eligible, the Milk District (Facebook) first had to raise $10,000, before being signed up for the City’s matching fund arrangement.
Milk District is the tenth Main Street District to join the program and will receive $50,000 in its first year of operations, after which each subsequent year the funding amount will drop to $0. The sliding scale is meant to push the programs to become more sustainable and self-funded. It is located in two City districts; District 2, under Commissioner Ortiz, and District 3, overseen by Commissioner Sheehan.
Notable businesses in the Milk District include: Beefy King, the Drunken Monkey, Market on South, Pom Pom’s Tea House, Milk Bar, Spacebar, Se7en Bites, and Crossfit Milk District. To see a map of the official Milk District boundaries, see our recent post on Main Street borders, HERE.
There will be a Milk District Main Street Part at 6:30 p.m. at the Tasty Tuesdays Food Truck gathering. Click HERE to see the Facebook event page.
