Beaches Town Center Agency, Inc.

Mission Statement

The Beaches Town Center Agency works for the improvement of the Atlantic Beach/Neptune Beach Central Business District….protecting its unique character as a traditional neighborhood and enhancing its presence as an economic and cultural town center.

Our History

Started in 1991 by several citizens from the community, BTCA initially began fundraising efforts to improve the AB/NB Central Business District. The goal was to make the area more inviting and pedestrian friendly with major enhancements in landscaping and public amenities (park benches, bike racks, etc). This work was done in phases. Fundraising efforts included the sale of engraved bricks, the Dancin in the Street™ Festival, Full Moon Party, Web.com’s Kick off to Golf and private donations.
