What we Do
RECENT PROJECTS IN 2019-2020
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.
