JOIN A COMMITTEE
College Park Main Street continues to make a vital difference to the attractive, economically vibrant community that College Park is today. Our success is due in large part to the enthusiastic, engaged volunteers who serve on our four steering committees and who truly energize the efforts that have led to our long track record of success! These four committees help steer the promotion, design, organization, and economic growth efforts to make College Park Main Street one of the best districts in all of Orlando! We need your help to oversee the College Park Main Street events and projects that benefit the entire community. Please see our list of committees and descriptions below, and consider joining these critical teams. You can also join our College Park Volunteers group on Facebook here.
College Park Main Street Volunteer Committees
We want Edgewater Drive to convey a visual message about College Park and what it has to offer residents and patrons. This is achieved by improving the physical appearance of buildings, streetlights, parking areas, sidewalks, and window displays along Main Street.
The Design Committee oversees the annual holiday decorating in Albert Park and management of the semi-annual College Park Cleanups along Edgewater Drive, among other activities.
Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month, 12-1 pm.
Chair: Clarisse Gates

Effective promotion creates a positive image of the community through retail promotional activity and special events, utilizing the community as a stage area for activities.

Chair: Carlie Paluzzi
