RE: A Letter to our Downtown Partners
As you may have heard, the Town of Fuquay-Varina is now managing the NC Main Street Program. Fuquay-Varina Downtown Revitalization Association (FVDA) managed this volunteer driven program since 2007. For the past five years our non-profit was awarded the highest accreditation possible for the Town of Fuquay-Varina, National Accreditation. The accreditation validated sound budgeting, partnerships and economic development through the context of historic preservation. Earlier this year, FVDA was notified that the Town of F-V would administer and manage the NC Main Street Program.
F-V Downtown has always done far more than just the Main Street Program. With roots that date back to 1993, FVDA has always functioned as a non-profit organization that relies on private businesses, volunteerism, and community involvement. It is through these relationships and partnerships that FVDA has been able to accomplish so much over the years on behalf of downtown. Events initiated by our non-profit have brought attention, positive exposure and activity to downtown that benefits not only downtown, but also the Fuquay-Varina community as a whole. We believe in supporting local businesses and understand the value of building relationships. We view our business owners and community as friends, which allows for a team approach.
Your F-V Downtown Association is excited about the future and continuing our advocacy for downtown and implementing the many functions we provide for Fuquay-Varina. Our sponsors have stepped up with additional funds in order to help us make up our shortfall as a result of loss of town funding. FVDA still needs to make up an annual deficit of $20,000 in order to maintain our level of offerings to the community. Now more than ever, we are dependent on your contribution to keep all the things we do for the citizens and businesses going!
It is FVDA’s desire to continue working on behalf of downtown, serving the Fuquay-Varina community, and making downtown an inviting, active, and vibrant destination for the next generation. Thank you for your continued support and partnership!
