Welcome

Stu­art Main Street is a 501 ©3 not-for-profit orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to improv­ing the appear­ance and eco­nomic sta­bil­ity of His­toric Down­town Stuart.

Our mis­sion is to cre­ate and mar­ket a pos­i­tive image of His­toric Down­town Stu­art through spe­cial events, retail sales, effec­tive adver­tis­ing and pub­lic rela­tions. We often part­ner with pub­lic, pri­vate sec­tor and com­mu­nity lead­ers to develop and coor­di­nate resources to down­town Stuart’s success.

We spon­sor many pop­u­lar com­mu­nity events, such as:

  • Howard Alan Art Show
  • Spring Craft Festival
  • Star Span­gled Stuart
  • Dancin’ In The Streets
  • Fall Craft Festival
  • Christ­mas on Main Street

We’re part of the Florida Main Street pro­gram, which is admin­is­tered by the National Main Street Cen­ter of the National Trust for His­toric Preser­va­tion. Florida Main Street’s mis­sion is to pro­vide the tools to Florida Main Street cities to revi­tal­ize their his­toric down­town cen­ters. We use the “Main Street 4-Point Approach,” as a blue­print to work with com­mu­nity lead­ers to bring about many small but pos­i­tive improve­ments. This approach includes pro­mo­tion, design, eco­nomic restruc­tur­ing and organization.

Would you like to help His­toric Down­town Stu­art main­tain its “Old Florida Charm” while sup­port­ing all aspects of revi­tal­iza­tion? We invite you to get involved in one or more of our committees:

Pro­mo­tion:

Build a pos­i­tive image of our down­town with pub­lic rela­tions, adver­tis­ing and retail and spe­cial events.

Design:

An attrac­tive com­mu­nity begins with land­scap­ing, light­ing, sig­nage and well-designed and main­tained build­ings led by the Design Committee.

Busi­ness Improve­ment and Development:

Healthy busi­nesses are the basis of eco­nomic oppor­tu­ni­ties for all. Work to strengthen our exist­ing busi­nesses and recruit new mer­chants on the Busi­ness Improve­ment and Devel­op­ment Committee.

Orga­ni­za­tion:

A bet­ter com­mu­nity starts with strong part­ner­ships. Work with vol­un­teers, recruit mem­bers, raise funds and build new rela­tion­ships on the Orga­ni­za­tion Committee.

Stu­art Main Street meets the sec­ond Tues­day of every month at 4:30 p.m. in the City Hall Cham­bers at 121 SW Fla­gler Avenue, Stuart.
