Board Meeting:3rd Thursday every month
IBC Bank, 221 S Shoreline, 2nd floor at 9am
DMD initiated the process to update their Three Year Strategic Plan on June 29th at the HolidayÂ Inn Marina. Â DMD Board members gathered for 2 hours in the morning for a board retreat where they were briefed on strategic Downtown initiatives and projects. At the retreat DMD Board members:
DMD strongly felt that for the plan to be successful that stakeholder input and buy-
in was needed. So, the public was invited to come to an open house from 5-7 p.m. on the 29th to view the work from the board retreat. Â More than 120 enthused people attended. Â They enjoyed snacks and beverages Â and made suggestions, voted on priorities and proposed new ideas and initiatives. Â It was an incredible turn-out and great ideas and optimism was generated about Downtown’s future.
DMD staff will take the work from the board retreat and the input garnered from the open house and create the nextÂ Three Year Strategic PlanÂ by the end of August. Â It will then be approved by he DMD Board and City Council. Â Execution of the plan will then begin October 1, 2017. Â Stay tuned for updates!
