Orlando’s Main Streets program has been named the July 2019 Main Street Program of the Month by Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee. The Orlando Main Streets Program started in 2008 and now has 10 main street districts. The Thornton Park District, Milk District and Church Street District are in the historic Downtown Orlando area.
“The districts that make up Orlando Main Streets are recognized due to their diversity and community involvement,” Secretary Lee said in a press release. “These districts have worked tremendously hard over the past decade to ensure the neighborhoods that reflect the rich history and vibrant city of Orlando continue to flourish.”
The Florida Main Streets Program, which is under the umbrella of the Division of Historical Resources and Florida Department of State, awards the program of the month.
