Board of Directors

The Downtown Tucson 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 partners, the City of Tucson, Rio Nuevo and Pima County. The DTP's Board has several committees and councils, 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 held quarterly each year and are open to the general public.
