Downtown Clearwater Recieves Award of DistinctionThe City of Clearwater’s Community Redevelopment Agency received an Award of Distinction at the International Downtown Association’s 55th annual conference in Milwaukee this September. The award was given in recognition of the city’s active program to recruit new retail, business and restaurant enterprises, and for the Cleveland Street District, the new name of the city’s recently redeveloped downtown.

 

“This award validates our efforts to leverage the downtown streetscape improvements with businesses that strengthen the city’s core,” said Downtown Manager Courtney Orr. “Even in the current economy, we’re beginning to see results as businesses renew their interest in the area and new restaurants open. We know we’re doing something right.”

Downtown Clearwater was one of seventy-seven nominees for Downtown Achievement Awards submitted to the International Downtown Association this year.

The International Downtown Association was founded in 1954. It has over 650 member organizations, forming a worldwide network that promotes and nurtures dynamic international regions, cities and towns.
