In 2009, in an effort to address growing concerns about the vitality and marketability of Park Avenue, the Winter Park Community Redevelopment Agency retained the services of Britt Beemer, founder of America’s Research Group, to assess the issues and opportunities facing the Park Avenue area. Based on his findings and the public input, the Park Avenue Area Strategic Plan was developed.

The strategic plan has six goals that are identified as key areas. Since 2009, the Park Avenue Area Task Force has worked diligently with merchants, property owners and key stakeholders on achieving these goals. The creation of a Business Improvement District (BID) will provide ongoing funding for marketing and improvement efforts on Park Avenue.
