To maintain a strong level of support for communities and URAs, DCI is constantly working hard to stay on top of URA and District needs and help the URA and District staff and boards as they work through formation, project development, project management, reporting, and building capacity and partnerships.

This page has educational presentations, directories, and example documents, but our library is every growing. If you don't see something that fits answers your question or fits your need, reach out to us at [email protected] we will get you connected with a great resource from our statewide network! 

UNDERSTANDING COLORADO'S DOWNTOWN DISTRICTS


DCI is your home for understanding the types of districts used in Colorado Downtowns, how they are selected, formed, and managed. These items provide a general overview and explanation of what other communities have done. 

 URA + DDA + BID DIRECTORIES


DCI collects and updates information annually to share an accurate list of the different downtown districts in the state. Each year we include a summary of our districts collected through the annual BID, DDA, and URA survey process. Each year we strive to add more information about the budgets, staffing, number of plan areas, and more. 

DDA + BID BOARD MEMBER MANUALS


DCI partners with our Board Member and legal guru Rick Kron and Spencer Fane to bring you board manuals for training and sharing with your BID and DDA Board of Directors. 


CASE STUDIES + REPORTS


DCI strives to help BIDs, DDAs, and URAs share their story and impacts. We are happy to help you connect with the case studies and reports completed by your peers as well as reports that highlight trends and the importance of downtowns, town centers, and commercial districts. 

Additional DCI + Partner reports can be found here
