Foley was named a Main Street designated city in June of 2018. A part of the benefit of being selected is a visit from Main Street officials who specialize in helping cities reach the next level. The team visited Foley on Sept. 11 – 13, toured the city and meet with key representatives from across the community. They listened to residents, business owners, property owners, civic leaders, and clergy, and from these interviews and their observations  made a number of recommendations. The findings were presented at a public forum on Sept. 13. The video above is a recording of that report.
