LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Dear Friend of College Park:

 

It is my sincere hope that this letter finds you in the best of health and good spirits.

I am writing to ask for your help in the community.

 

More than a decade ago, the City of College Park embarked upon a downtown revitalization program called “Main Street,” an economic development program created by the National Trust for Historic Preservation that promotes downtown revitalization through historic preservation.    The College Park Main Street Association, Inc. (CPMSA) was formed for that purpose.  The CPMSA works with the City of College Park Economic Development Department to create a vibrant economically thriving business district in the core of our great city.

 

In order for our programs to be successful, we need your help.  Our focus is on three core areas:

 

         1. Façade improvements (exterior improvements to buildings),

          2. Special Events & Festivals, and

          3. Public Safety Initiatives (making our downtown business district and its patrons feel safe).

 

One of the things you may not know is, College Park is one of the 900 accredited Main Street programs.  However the City receives no funding from the state for this effort.  This leaves us with an important task – to raise funds for the purpose of implementing programs that help us achieve the goals of creating a better downtown.  For example, your membership and donations help us establish a façade grant program to assist in improving the look and feel of downtown.  In addition, your contributions allow us to offer events such as the Annual Wine Stroll.

 

Join the College Park Main Street Association, Inc. and be part of the progress!

 

Thank you for your past support of our events and programs, and please consider participating.  Working together, we can continue creating a downtown alive with excitement!  Downtown belongs to the whole community; it is the core of our great city.
