Downtown Berkeley Association

The Downtown Berkeley Association (DBA) currently holds the contract to perform services for the Downtown Area Business Improvement District. 

Its mission is to strengthen Berkeley's Downtown as a vibrant and welcoming urban destination for arts, culture, and commerce through effective advocacy, promotion, and direct services.

They advocate for implementation of policies essential to the continued revitalization of the downtown: beautification and preservation; improved retail mix; clean and safe streets; and improved transportation and parking. In addition, the DBA promotes Downtown as the East Bay's premiere arts and commerce district through special events and various marketing materials.
