Develop a board that is made up of individuals who represent different constituencies within your downtown district and the community at large.

Note: “Board” refers to a Board of Directors of a non-profit or other legal entity, an Advisory Board, Committee, or Commission.

Recruit board members from different industries. Here is a sample of constituencies that typically are downtown stakeholders:

  • Property Owners
  • Business Owners
  • Economic Development
  • Business Council
  • Housing Authority
  • Local Banks or Financial Institutions
  • Realtors
  • Planning & Zoning
  • Historic Organizations
  • Library
  • Civic Orgs
  • Faith-based
  • K-12 School System
  • College System
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Tourism
