From street lighting to park improvements, DCP convenes and champions discussions and initiatives intended to advance Downtown’s planning, development, and long-term vitality.
DCP created and maintains the Downtown Wilkes-Barre Five-Year Action Plan – the market-based “business plan” for Downtown Wilkes-Barre – just as it had done for the Plan’s 2003 predecessor, known as the Strategic Market Development Plan.
DCP retains and attracts businesses and new commercial investment to Downtown through marketing and direct outreach.
DCP serves as the initial point of contact for parties interested in information about Downtown retail and commercial investment.
DCP markets the current incentives and resources that are available to Downtown business owners.
DCP manages and maintains a digital Database of Available Downtown Properties.
DCP is the Downtown Wilkes-Barre market data source, collecting and disseminating up-to-date market information regarding available downtown properties, occupancy rates, and lease rates/sales prices.
The Downtown Residents Association, a committee of DCP, supports Downtown’s growth as a vibrant residential neighborhood.
