In the year 2020, we will celebrate 45 years of service to businesses in our Business Improvement Area, as it was defined in 1975. To celebrate that milestone and usher in the next era of success, we will embark on a strategic planning process that will rely on community participation.

Our organization is made up of the fee-paying businesses who operate within our boundaries, voluntary members, and our civic collaborators, including nonprofit organizations, residents, and visitors to our Downtown. We have a robust partnership with the City of San Luis Obispo, and we proudly advocate to the City on behalf of our membership, as well as participate in the process and important work of shaping policy to ensure our Downtown is positioned to be successful.

We invite you to engage with our daily work and help us as we build community in our beloved Downtown.
