Our Mission

The Mission of Our Town is to be an advocate for local business owners, to create awareness within our community about the value of supporting the local economy, to advance a level playing field for all businesses, and to promote the unique character of Our Town!

Why join Our Town?

  • Our Town is a newly formed local business advocacy group here in Gainesville, to level the playing field for local business
  • Our Town is a growing organization that needs the support of all local businesses in Alachua County. As we grow, we will have a stronger voice in the community. This will allow us to grow a stronger local economy and help our community and our town!
  • To become a dues paying business member ($30 annual dues to help our effort succeed), fill out a membership form. Members will receive an enhanced listing in the directory, and are entitled to display our beautiful window decal so that customers can identify you as an Our Town member. Dues will be used to create and maintain the directory and website, and print the decals, and carry out joint marketing efforts.
