Stuart, FL, United States
The 2014 Florida Main Street Conference, co-sponsored by the Treasure Coast Section of APA-Florida and the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, will take place in historic downtown Stuart which has been a Florida Main Street community for over 25 years. The Florida Main Street program is a technical assistance program administered by the Bureau of Historic Preservation, Division of Historical Resources, Florida Department of State, for the planning of traditional historic commercial corridors. The Bureau conducts statewide programs aimed at identifying, evaluating, and preserving Florida's historic resources. Main Street, with its emphasis on preservation, is an effective strategy in achieving these goals in Florida's historic retail districts. This conference will highlight the City of Stuart’s successes throughout the years including a complete road redesign that was initiated by the Community Redevelopment Agency lead by the City's CRA Administrator, Teresa Lamar-Sarno, AICP. Other conference sessions will focus on historic preservation, form based codes, urban design treatment for Okeechobee, tours of the redevelopment areas, and analyzing the civic space of sidewalks, just to highlight a few sessions.
