Downtown Neighborhoods and Residents Council 

The Downtown Neighborhoods and Residents Council (DNaRC) is a standing committee of the DTP that represents thousands of people who live, work and enjoy downtown. DNaRC serves as a conduit for downtown area neighborhoods and residents to stay informed about current and future plans for downtown. The council also provides a forum to ensure that neighborhoods have an opportunity for meaningful input into the shaping of policies, programs, and projects that accompany downtown development. DNaRC meets the first Monday of every month (unless otherwise noted through email by the Chair).

Chair: Les Pierce
