A New Take on the Old Pueblo

Board of Directors

The Partnership’s activities and expenditures are governed by a diverse Board of Directors, comprised of Downtown property owners and businesses, leaders of non-profit stakeholders, and representatives of the Partnership’s primary partner, the City of Tucson. The Downtown Tucson Partnership’s Board has several advisory committees, which offer opportunities for the involvement of the general public; we welcome the input of Downtown’s diverse stakeholders and the wider community. Board meetings are open to the general public.

Board of Directors Meeting Dates:

*Unless otherwise noted, meetings take place in the Pioneer Building conference room located on the first floor of the Pioneer Building, 100 N. Stone Avenue at 1pm.
