Get Involved 

 The Downtown Board Meetings are open to the public and all constituents are encouraged to attend. 

Attending meetings is a great way to stay informed about what is happening Downtown and to let your voice be heard. The Commissioners welcome volunteers to serve on various committees such as the Parking &  Maintenance Committee, Marketing & Beautification Committee, and the Planning Committee. 

There are also opportunities to sponsor, support, and volunteer at downtown events.

For more information about any of these opportunities, contact the Downtown Manager.
