Main Street Zephyrhills is the official visitors’ center for downtown Zephyrhills FL. We hope to see you soon in the downtown district.
Main Street Zephyrhills, Inc. is dedicated to providing economic vitality through historic preservation, pride in our quality of life and a strong sense of community.
In the past, the word brought to mind an image of a bustling center of commerce and activity. Too often today, the image is of vacant, deteriorating buildings. Now communities have discovered that with help from Florida Main Street, downtown can thrive again.
Throughout Florida, there is a growing interest in improving the appearance and economical stability of downtown business districts. In many small communities, the downtown is in a serious state of decline. Effective solutions to the problems of deteriorating building stock, loss of business and the waning economic strength of downtown are crucial to the survival of the city itself.
There are many reasons for a community to actively encourage the revitalization of their downtown. An economically healthy, historic downtown Zephyrhills:
- Builds a positive image for the community. An attractive downtown reflects a community’s confidence in itself and its future.
- Creates job opportunities by attracting new industry and strengthening services and retail job markets.
- Saves tax dollars by stabilizing and improving the area’s tax base and protecting the investment already made in downtown infrastructures.
- Preserves the community’s historic resources. In an economically healthy downtown, property owners can afford to maintain the historic commercial buildings and preserve an important part of the community’s heritage.
