About Us - Downtown Community Partnership

About Downtown Fargo

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).
