Why should I join? What does my membership buy/pay for?

The formation of this group is to utilize collective action to realize a bigger picture for Downtown Lewiston. By working together on advocacy and marketing, we will have the ability to achieve what individual members can not accomplish on their own. Membership is more than just having a presence on this resource website, it is about realizing a bigger picture for Downtown Lewiston.

By collectively investing through membership:

  • We will have the ability to create marketing materials that promote the downtown as a destination which will help our current businesses
  • We will have the ability to create marketing materials that promote the downtown as an investment opportunity for new businesses and companies to move and invest here
  • We will have the ability to offer private investment partnership opportunities with the city of Lewiston for needed improvements or enhancements in the downtown area

Once our non profit filing fees and startup costs are covered, 100% of our membership dues and sponsorships go to our programs and initiatives. Your money and your support go to your cause.

The vitality of Lewiston's Downtown is everyone's responsibility and by donating to our cause you will help us achieve these goals through our own initiatives and through partnerships with city administration.
