The Downtown Enfield Restoration and Preservation Association (DERP) is a
501(c)3 non-profit membership organization comprised of business owners and citizens to strengthen and support downtown revitalization. The organization’s primary focus is stabilization of existing infrastructure, revitalization of abandoned properties through redevelopment, promote Enfield’s natural eco-agri-cultural tourism opportunities, and to develop and publish resources and economic incentives to attract and retain business in Downtown Enfield.
DERP works to provide positive publicity for Downtown Enfield. Through an intensive publicity campaign to raise awareness of Enfield's assets and positive attributes DERP has changed the conversation about Enfield.
DERP creates events to attract visitors to Enfield and raise the necessary funding that is needed to revitalize Downtown.
We have planted 23 trees, replaced building awnings, painted facades of buildings, repaired roofs, hired artists to create murals, designed and created a pocket park Town Square, published historic homes brochures, and so much more.
We are currently designing a powerpoint on building reuse for marketing and economic development purposes.
Promoting our agri-eco-cultural tourism trilogy and pursuing economic development opportunities is our focus.
We encourage you to volunteer with us!
