The Downtown Collective


Our downtown has stood the test of time and holds immense history and value. It represents a truly unique and iconic development area for economic and social activity and has the ability, as been demonstrated in the past, to create a critical mass of commercial, cultural and community activities.

Similarly, our Chamber has been around since 1900 and has stood the test of time. We recognize the value of our downtown core and its potential, and we have consistently demonstrated our willingness to work together on our collective efforts. Our Chamber also represents 112 downtown stakeholders as members of our organization. This represents more than one-tenth of our membership, so we have a vested interest in serving these members and all stakeholders of the downtown to make sure we can support their needs moving forward.
