Economic Development in Fort Pierce

Image
We moved to the Treasure Coast earlier this year. We love it -- the beaches, the community feel, the congestion-free roads ... but, in Fort Pierce there seems to be some trouble with economic development. The city has a pretty amazing history that we learned when we visited the Fort Pierce Navy Seal museum. (Check it out when you are in the area!)

Anyway, the other week, we were walking into a downtown cafe and noticed the store next door was sweeping up shattered glass. Nutrition World and the adjacent Florist shop were both burglarized. WTF?! Their cash register was broken into (or taken? can't remember which) and they also had a laptop swiped from their property. I think the same was true for the florist.

My problem with this is that the downtown area has such potential but there are so many vacancies. This should be considered prime real estate ... but with crimes like this and locals not supporting local business, it's understandable why more stores aren't opening up…
