while keeping an eye toward the area’s diversity and growth as an economic engine in the region.

  • Mission: To improve our community by design, empower local businesses and residents to collaborate, and create a vibrant atmosphere to live, work, and play.

District Founding

SoDo District, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, was established in the Fall of 2008 by a group of local residents and business owners, who recognized its potential and wanted to make a difference in the quality of life for all.

Through The Orlando Main Street Program, SoDo District receives financial and technical assistance and intensive training in the Main Street 4-Point approach (Design, Economic Vitality, Organization and Promotion).

We employ a full-time Executive Director, and implement our programs according to an annual work plan, approved by our committees and Board of Directors.

Future Plans

Plans for the SoDo District include creating and preserving retail opportunities, walkable destinations, civic spaces, streetscape improvements, business facade enhancements, overall design and development guidelines and more.

Banners with our logo line our streets to highlight our area for visitors and shoppers alike, and our supporting businesses are easily identified by their Member sticker displayed prominently.

To accomplish our goals, we will support existing businesses, recruit unique shops, add bicycle racks, establish annual events and festivals, and work closely with businesses and residents to continue to improve our wonderful area through revitalization, investment and beautification.
