Building up Norman Park

Norman Park officials are working to transform their downtown.

They say thanks to the help of a newly formed Downtown Authority, they’ve recently added a health clinic, new signage, new street lights, and spent $30,000 re-doing all the sidewalks.

Norman Park Mayor Bruce Norton says, “you need things happening in a community or it will die on you. We need more people in here shopping. The streets are full right now, you can’t hardly find a place to park your vehicle.”

The next big thing on the list is re-doing an old building located downtown, and making it into the new city hall.
