Ultimate Representation in All City Organizations

You’ll be amazed at how effective we are

If you own property or have your business located in the district, you understand that there are numerous city-related projects and issues that affect how you operate. Whether it’s tax increases, street realignment, the pending streetcar, parking, or what to do with nuisance crime, all can influence how you do business now and in the future. But let’s face it. You are simply too busy running your company to find the time to attend all the meetings that deal with these issues. That’s why we’re here.

  • Dedicated Board of Directors - It’s like having your own research team when it comes to monitoring all the issues that impact the district.
  • Committees for Each Discipline - Business owners like you meet with city and governmental agencies to provide solutions on such topics as Land Use, Transportation and Community Policing.
