Downtown Boulder Partnership
Who We Are
The Downtown Boulder Partnership (DBP) is a 501(c)6 membership-based organization that relies on membership revenue to help promote the civic, economic and commercial vitality of downtown Boulder - while helping preserve its historic and cultural environment as the heart of the greater Boulder community. DBP supports downtown businesses through public policy advocacy and provides some funding for staffing and administration to implement the mission of DBP along with those of the Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District (BID) and Downtown Boulder Community Initiatives (DBCI).
DBP members are actively engaged within the downtown community. DBP's Public Policy group provides input on city matters impacting the well-being of the downtown district. Members are well informed, connected and represented within the district. Member businesses also have the opportunity to participate in various member events hosted by DBP. Join now for Membership for the 2022 Calendar year (January - December). New members joining October - December of the year prior are activated immediately.
