Downtown Long Beach property owners, and businesses interested in making a difference in their community are encouraged to apply for available seats on the Downtown Long Beach Alliance Board of Directors. The deadline to apply is Friday, June 16.

The DLBA administers two improvement districts (business and property) that covers more than 150-square blocks of the Downtown core and surrounding communities, which represent nearly 5,000 stakeholders. Businesses and property owners are stakeholders by virtue of their location and serve different areas of the Downtown. Please see the maps illustrating those boundaries here.

Between the DLBA Board of Directors and its various committees, over 70 DTLB stakeholders volunteer their time to improve the urban center’s community. The direct inclusion of members from the diverse constituencies of Downtown Long Beach permits the DLBA to better serve interests, address current issues and implement future solutions.

Seeking one representative for each of the following seats:

  • Business Owner, Pine Ave Area
  • Business Owner, East Village Area
  • Business Owner, Waterfront Area
  • Commercial Property Owner, Standard Property District
  • Commercial Property Owner, Premium Property District
  • Resident Property Owner

Following the June 16 submittal deadline, DLBA’s Governance Committee will review the submissions and interview each eligible candidate before creating two slates (one business and one property) and asking all stakeholders to ratify them in late August. All seats are two year terms effective October 1.

To apply online and learn more about the available seats and the Directors roles and responsibilities, interested parties are invited to visit www.downtownlongbeach.org/board2017. Applications are due on June 16 and members of the community with questions are welcome to call the DLBA offices at 562.436.4259 or email info@dlba.org
