Historic Downtown Revitalization Topic At Museum Meeting

LABELLE, FL. -- Shellie Johnson, principal at En-Site, Inc, the City of LaBelle's planning agency, will be the guest speaker at LaBelle Heritage Museum's Thursday, May 1, program meeting in LaBelle City Hall's Commission Chamber, 481 W. Hickpochee Avenue, at 7 o'clock in the evening. 

Ms. Johnson and a group of local citizens have initiated a revitalization campaign for Historic Downtown LaBelle. Recognizing the need to rejuvenate our economic and historic commerce center, they are committed to recreating a vibrant, economically successful Downtown while preserving its unique historic character and resources.

This commitment goes hand in glove with LaBelle Heritage Museum's statement of purpose to discover, protect, and promote our history and heritage. Rather than serving only as a dot on the map of a major corridor between two sides of the state, this group proposes to promote LaBelle’s Downtown Walking District, its cultural offerings and significance along the Caloosahatchee River as a treasured location for residents and visitors to enjoy. 

The success of any such effort lies in the hands of the community through local engagement and volunteerism. Creating a unique area to reflect our civic pride in the heart of our community will effect the future of LaBelle Heritage Museum for years to come.
