“DEP has helped grow my business because it lays the foundation to draw attention to and attract customers to our downtown. They do this through advertising, holding events and giving downtown a voice and vision. Without their extra support downtown would not be where it is today. It has become strong and vibrant. Having this team of people helping grow your business is a great resource.”

“It’s now easier to reflect on what helped us sustain through the years. Being a part of something bigger helped being in business a bit easier from the start.
