What’s New in Downtown NPR

So many changes have taken place over the last year in downtown NPR. From new restaurants to a new brand, check out what’s new, what’s different, and what’s stayed the same!

Our New Brand

In June, the City of New Port Richey City Council approved the adoption and implementation of a new City brand! This included a logo, a branded typeface, a color palette, and many examples of how this could be applied. Today, you can see that new brand reflected in the logos for Downtown NPR, the NPR Public Library, the NPR Recreation and Aquatic Center, the NPR Fire Department, and the NPR Police Department.

You can also see physical elements of the new brand in the form of banners, signage, and apparel!

DOWNTOWN NPR Businesses recognized as “Best of the Best” ON WFLA’s Daytime

Downtown New Port Richey dominated the Tampa Bay award season, winning over two-dozen “Best of the Best” awards for our coastal community.

Several gold winners stood out for competing with regional heavy-weights. The Richey Suncoast Theatre, for example, went up against the historic Tampa Theatre to win “Best Local Theater.” The White Heron Tea Room took on the surging tide of tea bars to continue their reign as “Best Tea Room.” Cotee River Brewing topped well-known local brewers in Dunedin and Tampa to be named runner-up for “Best Local Brewer.”

DOWNTOWN NPR improves, adds parking options

The City of New Port Richey is committed to increasing the accessibility of parking. Following the successful renovation of the Gloria Swanson Lot, the City is prepared to break ground on a parking garage at the corner of US-19 & Main Street, set to be completed by June of 2021.

In 2019, downtown NPR saw record attendance for events like KIAfest, Trick-or-Treat, and the City’s concert series. Visitor feedback pointed toward the need for increased parking awareness, prompting us to create a downtown parking map!
