Downtown South Committees
Four committees are the backbone of Downtown South. These committees plan and implement the goals of Downtown South.
Downtown South is a community based program, drawing on the talent, passion, and resources of local businesses, residents, property owners and the government to restructure and nurture a vibrant business district that is inviting for people to live, work, shop, dine and play.
Downtown South committees include volunteers that are residents, representatives of corporations, city officials, and own small businesses. These volunteers are committed to bringing renewed activity, vitality, and a sense of pride to the community of Downtown South.
Stephen Alieniello, Chair
The Design Committee encourages physical improvements to the area. This includes façade upgrades, banners for the district, bike racks and steet-scapes. People with a background in architecture or art and design are encouraged to join, as well as anyone else interested in helping Downtown South look the best it can.
Meetings: 1st Thursday 5:30 PM – Locations change on monthly basis (email for location)
Economic Vitality Committee
Edwin Gonzalez, Chair
Committee members work on a number of projects, including creating a recruitment packet, identifying and speaking with potential business owners, conducting market studies and promoting networking between businesses. With a number of vacant storefronts in our area there is a lot of opportunity to shape the character of Downtown South – we need people with good business sense and an interest in the success of the business we have and will have.
Meetings: 2nd Tuesday, 1 PM — Locations change on monthly basis (based on the Nom of the Month)

Residents, merchants, commercial property owners are all great for this committee along with those with an accounting background, media representatives and volunteer specialists.
