If you operate a business located in the Business Improvement District, you are a member of the Downtown Association of Santa Cruz.

This page is designed specifically to provide information and resources to help you succeed and thrive, doing business in Downtown Santa Cruz. We encourage you to take some time to explore the links on the right and familiarize yourself with the resources, opportunities, and programs available to downtown businesses, and to take an active part in your Downtown Business Community.
