Community Engagement

DDA Meet and Greet

The DDA hosts regular Meet and Greets where business owners and community members can meet DDA Staff, DDA Board members, and other DDA business owners.  This is a great way to learn about DDA projects, and how to get involved. 

Meet and Greets highlight DDA restaurants by offering samples of their catering menus.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meet and greets  are postponed until further notice.
