Virtual Series III

Special Downtown Financing Districts

Downtown Trends + District Impacts

Our Special Districts including DDA’s, BID’s and URA’s are have see the greatest impact during the current economic crisis. They have become our first responders in support of their businesses and projects that make our communities unique. Join us in this interactive session as we explore ways to support and protect district tools as well as the formation and barriers to formation of special districts.

August 19, 2020 | 10 a.m.

How can Special Districts support our commercial districts?  While there are thousands of Special Districts across the state, there are three that often focus on commercial areas  to bolster livability and economic vitality. From Downtown Denver to Montrose, these districts have incorporated placemaking, innovation and inclusion into their priorities. Now that businesses are having to navigate the uncharted territory of COVID-19, and taxing districts are seeing major declines, the threat to these districts are real and will greatly impact how they continue their mission.

Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) is proud to host EDCC’s DRIVE | LEAD | SUCCEED Virtual Series which will feature DCI’s members and the front line economic response from Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Downtown Development Authorities (DDAs), and Urban Renewal Authorities (URA’s) in Colorado, the taxes that fund them, and what impacts we can expect. DCI’s partner, Progressive Urban Management Associates (PUMA), will share the 2020 Global Trends Report Pandemic Update, which considers how the pandemic and associated disruptions will affect North American downtowns.
