Northwood Village in West Palm Beach has been officially 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 designation focuses on economic development and historic preservation.
As part of the designation, the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency will provide $150,000 over three years to the Northwood Village Main Street program to help renew and revitalize the community in one of the city’s oldest historic neighborhoods.
“With the Main Street framework and our motivated community residents, we are confident that Northwood Village will not only thrive, but become another bustling city center,” said Jon Ward, West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency executive director.
