The City is proud to announce that Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner has awarded Fernandina Beach the prestigious designation as a Florida Main Street community!
A healthy vibrant town builds its future on the past. The program promotes sensible, sustained economic growth and enhancements based on local assets, especially historic resources and buildings. Being a Florida Main Street will enable us to maintain a focus on downtown to create greater economic stability, revitalization, sustainability, vitality, quality of life and civic pride.
Fernandina Beach Main Street is a partnership between the City of Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce and the Amelia Island Convention & Visitors Bureau. All partners are thankful for the overwhelming support of the community for the Main Street program and are excited to get started. Stay tuned for updates as the program develops, and be sure to like the “Fernandina Beach Main Street” page on Facebook, “FernandinaBeachMainStreet” on Instagram, and use #fernandinabeachmainstreet in posts.
