Mission
MARP is a not-for-profit local development corporation incorporated in January 1999 with the mission to restore the “Main Street” of the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill community to a bustling, economically vital neighborhood commercial corridor that provides entrepreneurial, cultural, recreational, and employment opportunities for all those who live, work, study or have an interest in the area. To revitalize Myrtle Avenue, MARP provides programs in commercial revitalization, business attraction & retention, facade improvement, historic preservation, cultural tourism initiatives, technical assistance, environmental stewardship, and urban planning and advocacy for the neighborhood and its small businesses. In addition, MARP manages Myrtle Avenue’s Business Improvement District (BID), which provides supplementary sanitation, graffiti removal, beautification, and marketing services.
