Mission Statement

Our mission is to build a strong, unified business environment; facilitate economic development; and strengthen community--all to nurture a diverse, vibrant, thriving, and strong Uptown.

Description

Uptown United is Uptown’s community economic development organization serving the entire Uptown community. We achieve our mission through marketing, advocacy, and technical assistance; facilitating economic development through smart urban planning, arts development, and business attraction; and strengthen community through capacity building and placemaking efforts.

In order to work most effectively, we are structured as an umbrella organization with three partner groups: Business Partners, The Chamber for Uptown, a separate 501(c)(6) membership organization with its own governance; Development Partners-developers, residents, real estate experts, urban planners, and property owners working to address development and infrastructure issues in the community by initiating planning projects and guiding private and public development, and Community Partners-that works to support Uptown’s many nonprofit organizations and service providers through professional development, advocacy, and networking activities. Uptown United also serves as the sole service provider for Uptown Special Service Area #34, a special taxing body that focuses on commercial and mixed-use corridor improvements and marketing efforts throughout the district.
