PANAMA CITY — In the last 30 years, the Panama City Main Street program has generated more than $62 million in reinvestment value for the city’s downtown Harrison Avenue corridor.
Those three decades of accomplishments were recognized last month by the Florida Department of State, which designated Panama City Main Street the July Florida Main Street Community of the Month.
Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner cited the “art deco” charm of Harrison Avenue as an asset the program has worked to preserve and highlight over the years.
“From the scenic view of the marina, to the wonderfully preserved Art Deco architecture of the historic Martin Theatre, the Panama City Main Street area is filled with an assortment of visual delights,” Detzner said. “Panama City’s Main Street program provides many benefits to the entire community.”
