We’re a 501C6 Non-Profit in North Dakota
The DCP’s commitment to downtown dates back to 1969 with the incorporation of the Fargo Park and Shop later becoming the Downtown Business Association. Over the years, the name changed to emphasize a more community approach to downtown revitalization. This mission was expanded beyond traditional retail and special events to take on development challenges facing downtown.
Major initiatives facilitated by the DCP over the years include the adoption of the North Dakota Renaissance Zone, the Broadway Streetscape Improvement Project, Railway Quiet Zone Project and most recently the development of North Dakota’s first Downtown Business Improvement District (BID).
To promote and expand Downtown as a preferred destination with a strong sense of place filled with vibrant culture, art, and commerce. Ultimately we strive to be a dynamic force for an unforgettable experience.
The purpose of the Downtown Community Partnership (DCP) is to serve our community through Advocacy, People, and Events. DCP is a strong advocate for businesses, residents, and community partners focused on economic growth, vibrancy, and advocacy of Downtown Fargo.
