Ocala Main Street (OMS) is our community’s program for improving and maintaining the heart of our community. OMS is more than a merchant’s or business association – it is a volunteer driven, nonprofit organization working to revitalize downtown Ocala. Officially designated as one of the first five Main Street communities in Florida in 1985, OMS employs the National Main Street 4-Point Approach to downtown revitalization.
The National Main Street program recommends a funding mix that includes municipal support, event income, and corporate, business, and community donors. OMS currently receives funding and support from the Ocala/Marion Chamber & Economic Partnership, the City of Ocala, and individual board members and businesses. The most successful Main Street programs are those that receive support – both financial and volunteer – from a broad base of community stakeholders.
Thank you for your interest in OMS and the future vitality of downtown Ocala as it becomes a stronger core of this beautiful town. Ready to get involved? Please consider one of our sponsorship packages and/or volunteer some of your time!
