City of Port St. Joe; Redevelopment Agency awarded BP tourism grants

The Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency (PSJRA) and the City of Port St. Joe have been awarded two grants through the BP-sponsored Gulf Coast Promotional Tourism Fund.

One, for $24,481, was awarded to the PSJRA to update the Historic Downtown brochure and to design and manufacture a new downtown banner series.

The second, $125,000, was awarded to fund a professional-quality video documentary of the rescue and relocation of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse.

Through this award, the 1997 Historic Downtown Brochure will be updated to reflect the color palette and fonts that coordinate with the redesigned Gulf County Visitor Guide.

The map will highlight existing businesses and provide visitors with the geographic outline of the historic and marina districts.

The brochure highlights the history of Port St. Joe and various reasons to shop, stay, dine, and play. The annual events listed coincide with those published in the Visitor Guide.

The new banner series will feature custom designs by local artist Richard Henderson and again coordinates with the updated color palettes and new “branding” initiated by the Gulf County Tourism Council.
