Winter Park has joined the Main Street America program and launched a new Main Street District for the popular Park Avenue retail corridor.
The new Winter Park Main Street (Website) stretches between Comstock and Canton avenues, to promote the over 150 local businesses that call it home.
The non-profit is currently being led by Sarah Grafton, the assistant vice president of Merrill Bank of America.
The historic downtown is already being marketed by the City of Winter Park, The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce, and the Park Avenue Merchants Association.
“We look forward to collaborating with the District’s leaders, who created this entity to help Park Avenue qualify for new grant funding. The Chamber’s job is to maximize the efficiency of collaborations like these.”
– WP Chamber President and CEO Betsy Gardner Eckbert
The Orlando Main Streets Program was created in 2008.
