Building a Downtown Together

Get Involved and Be part of downtown's success story.

Everyone benefits from a prosperous, vibrant downtown. Our community was a much different place when HDR got started than where it is today.  Downtown’s success comes from having an organization lead the charge and having the support and participation of dedicated customers, partners, business owners, and volunteers. 

Together, we keep downtown’s momentum going. Help continue writing downtown’s success story by getting involved in our organization.
