Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) is a nonprofit, membership association committed to building better communities by providing assistance to Colorado downtowns, commercial districts and town centers. Established in 1982 as Colorado Community Revitalization Association and now dba Downtown Colorado, Inc., our organization provides core services to organizations and individuals engaged in downtown and commercial district development: technical assistance, education, advocacy and program participation. With approximately 500 members across Colorado, DCI serves a diverse group of communities and service providers. Members represent downtown organizations, local governments, development and improvement districts, consultants, individuals and others involved in downtown and community development. An organizational membership includes up to ten representatives from the organization, thereby greatly multiplying the number of individuals who benefit from a DCI membership. DCI members receive a wide variety of benefits including low-cost technical assistance, members-only events, discounts on educational events, scholarship opportunities, free professional referrals and phone consultations, access to online resource library, membership directory, discounts and benefits from partner organizations, and much more.
