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 partners, the City of Tucson, Rio Nuevo and Pima County. 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 Next Meeting Date: November 12, 2020, Zoom meeting details TBD
