The Dillon Business Association has been busy working for the businesses of Dillon. We've been creating and producing events to bring visitors to Dillon: The Summit of Bluegrass and Brews, Friday Night Concerts, the Festival of Lights. We've also been working with Town Government to improve economic development in Dillon and streamline processes for business growth.
What's new for 2013? The Board of Directors has recently set aside a significant amount of the budget to improve online member benefits. The Board plans to implement an online marketing consultation for members to improve their web savvy, online presence through their own websites as well as their listings on the DBA site and generally educate members on how to better market, influence and communicate through the internet. The Board is also currently planning the 2013 summer season of concerts, farmers markets and the third Summit of Bluegrass and Brews (June 22nd).
Many items remain important issues within the Town of Dillon. Among them are parking (both current parking restrictions and future parking needs with development), the new Dillon Economic Development Advisory Committee (DEDAC), Tax Increment Finance (TIF) and the Dillon Urban Renewal Authority (DURA). The Town has declared Dillon "open for business" and the Dillon Business Association wishes to make that slogan come true by working with the Town government and staff to streamline the processes for improvement and development.
The DBA currently represents over 70 businesses in and around Dillon. This representation gives the DBA a strong voice in Dillon government. The Board of Directors addresses issues within the Town as the arise and passes resolutions which are forwarded to the Town staff and council expressing the opion of the Town's businesses. Being oa member of the DBA gives business owners a say in local government that they might not otherwise have as non-residents.
