It is the new name of our community’s Main Street organization, a campaign initiated in 2003 by the Fell's Point Business Association and members of our community. FPMS has been created to proactively generate the revitalization of Fell's Point’s commercial and historic districts. Our mission to promote, strengthen and revitalize the commercial district for businesses and residents alike.
Like neighborhoods nationwide, we are experiencing growing pains associated with the economic, political and social pressures of residential expansion and commercial / urban revitalization. Since these pressures affect the entire community, it is essential that we work together and carefully plan for the future.
That is where the Main Street Program can help. The Baltimore Main Streets program’s directive is to provide assistance to communities like ours in planning, designing and managing their physical environment, specifically, vacant buildings, street-scapes, public facilities and open spaces. They then help the community identify proven solutions for the growth-related problems we are now facing. As a Main Street organization, Fell's Point businesses and residents alike gain a powerful resource and advocate. And that is something worth embracing.
