Pine Bluff Downtown Development
Pine Bluff was the first member of the Arkansas Downtown Network. This is a program within Main Street Arkansas which allows smaller communities resources and education on ways to revitalize their downtown areas. As a member, Downtown Development facilitates a training once a year for business owners. Revitalization efforts are based on a four point approach of Design, Organization, Promotion, and Economic Restructuring.
Pine Bluff Downtown Development has assisted in securing over 100 million dollars in investments since its founding. Partnering with many entities, Pine Bluff Downtown Development has worked toward revitalization efforts for the heart of the city as well as assisting with efforts in improving economic development in Pine Bluff and Jefferson County.
