Allapattah Main Street
The Allapattah Collaborative CDC is establishing a Main Street program. Main Street™ is a volunteer-led, place-based management strategy and network of over 1,600 communities of all sizes from rural to urban areas. Main Street is a preservation-based economic development framework driven by a locally-adopted, market-based strategy. The board, in conjunction with partners and volunteers, work across a broad range of activities that include:
1. Design to improve the physical environment (e.g., streetscapes, facades);
2. Promotion to market the district (e.g., events, social media, image-building);
3. Economic Vitality to reposition the district (e.g., business assistance, new business development, economic strategy);
4. Organizational Development to build a strong organization that represent a diverse set of stakeholders (e.g., human and financial resources).
