Northwood gets Florida Main Street designation

Northwood

This, from West Palm Beach’s Community Redevelopment Agency:

Northwood Village has been designated a Florida Main Street by the Florida Division of Historical Resources, the agency that preserves and promotes Florida’s historical, archaeological and folk culture resources.  The Main Street designation and program focuses on economic development in the context of historic preservation.

While concentrating on revitalizing Northwood Village’s historic commercial center, the program will seek to enhance the economic vitality, quality of life, and civic pride of the community, and encourage citizen participation in shaping its future.

The CRA will provide $150,000 over three years to the Northwood Village Main Street program to help renew and revitalize this community center, one of the city’s oldest historic neighborhoods.
