The Downtown Partnership consists of two special districts, the Downtown Development Authority and the Business Improvement District. View the Downtown Plan - Vibrant Together.

The Business Improvement District (BID)

The Business Improvement District produces and supports events that attract visitors, enrich life for residents, and drive revenue to local businesses. The BID also develops advertising, marketing, and public relations campaigns that reach regional, statewide, and national audiences and help brand Downtown as a regional hub.  View more on the Downtown Grand Junction Development Authority/Business Improvement District Website.

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) 

The DDA focuses on supporting and facilitating economic development efforts to enhance the viability of Downtown through grants, capital investment and improvements to public amenities.
