Throughout the 1980’s, downtown Flagstaff was a blighted district with little economic vitality or community excitement. In the early 1990’s downtown stakeholders came together to begin a process that would transform our downtown into a thriving and vibrant district.
Main Street Flagstaff Foundation was formed, funded and managed leading to many historic facade renovations and a general sense of business revival. Shortly thereafter, the City of Flagstaff and private property owners downtown formed a Special Improvement District (SID), with property owner contributions of over $1M, resulting in a sorely needed infrastructure and streetscape facelift. Upon the dissolution of the Main Street Flagstaff Foundation in early 2000, downtown stakeholders created the membership based Flagstaff Downtown Business Alliance (FDBA) to continue stewardship of historic downtown.
The Flagstaff Downtown Business Alliance (FDBA) is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the historic downtown as the heart of our community. We strive to encourage sustainable economic growth while respecting the spirit of our historic past. We represent our members through public and political advocacy with the goal of remaining the number one tourist destination in the City, and a place where locals gather in a clean, safe, and entertaining environment.
