The DID funds, initiates and/or supports a variety of events.

Do you have a business in the DID?  Do you have a special event or sale?  Let us know. Perhaps you have an idea for an event, improvement, activity or program you would like to share with the Board?  Contact the Business District Manager and we can feature it on our calendar.
