In 2014 Cocoa Beach was designated a Florida Main Street City and Cocoa Beach Main Street, Inc. was established to carry out the National Main Street Approach , a successful revitalization strategy used in over 2,200 cities across the United States.
Cocoa Beach Main Street, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that involves the entire community in revitalizing downtown. Our objective is to improve downtown by facilitating change and growth in four distinct areas: Organization, Promotion, Design and Economic Development.
Part of the Main Street philosophy is that downtown belongs to the entire community. Everyone has a stake and a role to play in the revitalization of their downtown.
One element that all downtowns have in common is that the physical, social, and economic character will change. The challenge for Cocoa is to keep change from translating into decline. Cocoa Beach Main Street's response is to become directly involved in causing positive change. The following is a sampling of some of those changes we plan to continue and develop:
• Strong public/private partnerships with the City of Cocoa Beach and all stakeholders
• Façade grant program
• Downtown Business Watch Program
• Inventory of available buildings for sale or lease
• Market Analysis and Redevelopment Recommendations for retail & residential uses
• Develop downtown events
• Green Space Design Concept
