The Heart of Brevard is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to maintain a vital downtown. Revitalization is done through design, economic improvement, promotion, and organization. The Heart of Brevard (HOB) has a professional staff and is guided by a board of directors made up of downtown business owners and civic leaders. It is funded by a balanced mix of public and private investment, and is affiliated with the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street Program. This is a nationwide program designed to promote downtown as a vital community center. Improving economic development, strengthening public participation, and making downtown a fun place to visit are as critical to a downtown’s future as are recruiting new businesses, rehabilitating buildings, and maximizing pedestrian comfort and safety.
The Heart of Brevard officially became a Main Street program in 1993.
