The Vilano Main Street Program has recieved several regional planning awards, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Sustainable Florida Award, and numerous Merit Awards given by the Secretary of State from Florida Main Street for Outstanding Public Improvement for its Town Center Streetscape. The program received over $25 million in grants for public improvements, including $4.1 million from the Florida Forever Florida Communities Trust to purchase property on the end of the Town Center to be used as an oceanfront park, community and special events center for permanent public use, sea turtle nesting center, and waterfront access. In 2008, the community streetscape celebration marked a milestone leading on to a cumulative $41 million dollar economic impact return as of 2015 data. Economic vitality continues!
