Downtown Enhancements
Venice ChristmasVenice MainStreet is constantly looking for ways to enhance downtown Venice. The partnership with the City and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice, MainStreet resulted in the construction of the Children’s Fountain in Centennial Park. The project now attracts children, parents and grandparents to downtown. MainStreet has also provided input to the City on the Central Business District Design Study on how to improve the look, feel and experience of downtown Venice. Venice MainStreet continues to assist the City with holiday décor as well. Venice MainStreet also recently launched their Facade Improvement Grant Program.
