Chris Brown to Speak at FRA Redevelopment Workshop

Chris Brown Will be discussing the Establishment of the Business Improvement District at the FRA Regional Meeting: “An Avenue in Motion” – June 10, 2016

Inn on 5th
699 6th Ave. S.
Naples, FL

Naples’ much-loved “main street,” 5th Avenue South, has reinvented itself over a dynamic 25-year period. Thanks to the vision, determination and heartfelt efforts of many volunteers, business owners and property owners, the city’s favorite Avenue is truly poised for great things. Established in December 2010, the 5th Avenue South Business Improvement District has moved forward at a rapid pace to reestablish both the perception and reality of 5th Avenue South as the “place to go” in Naples. A Board of Directors, Marketing Committee, Events & Promotions Committee, Avenue Enrichment Committee and Block Captains – all comprised of business owners, executives and property owners on the Avenue – are in place, involved and in motion. With a revitalized identity, exciting new branding initiatives and an ambitious action plan, 5th Avenue South is strategically positioned to experience its best years ever.
