A little bit more about what the DCA does:
- We are most visibly known for organizing robust events that help the downtown merchants and the community, but we do much more than events!
- We keep our businesses informed and connected and help provide resources and educational initiatives so best practices can be followed.
- We promote our downtown through social media, regional tourism advertising, weekly newsletters, walking maps, downtown websites, press releases, and more.
- We help keep our downtown aesthetic charming and vibrant with downtown lighting, flower baskets, murals, pennants, street emblems, benches, wayfinding signs, bronze art, clean-up days, and more.
- We offer a Facade Improvement Grant Program to help business and property owners add functionality, safety and aesthetic to their buildings, helping all of downtown to thrive.
- We work closely with many community volunteers who all bring their talents and interests to the table to support downtown efforts.
- We help recruit businesses that will create a strong business mix and provide for the needs of the community.
- We are close partners with the City, Port, Camas School District, and other local nonprofits and advocate for our downtown on local, state, and national levels.
- We routinely mentor students in the DECA program or students for their senior projects as we know that our students are our future business owners, customers, and leaders.
- We understand the importance of our downtown buildings and our structural and cultural history and encourage the preservation and maintenance of our buildings as well as provide heritage education.
We believe wholeheartedly in our downtown and the power it has in creating a strong community. We ask for your support for our organization which in turn helps strengthen the economic and cultural climate for all our downtown businesses.
