About Us

Downtown Inc is THE organization working to enhance and encourage investment in York’s central business district. We do that through:

Economic Development - business recruitment and retention
Promotions - advertising, marketing and special events
Placemaking - beautifying the landscape, improving physical elements such as traffic patterns, public spaces, cleanliness, walkability
Public Safety – working with police and sheriffs to mitigate criminal and vagrant activity
Downtown Inc is the trade name for a joint venture between the York Business Improvement District Authority and Main Street York, a 501(c)(3) not for profit.

Together they work to enhance and foster reinvestment in downtown York. The organization is comprised of a staff of six, a Board of 11 directors and more than 125 dedicated and committed volunteers.

Those volunteers serve in various capacities on standing committees that support the mission of the organization which is:

“OUR VISION: Through leadership and community collaboration, we will drive York’s prosperity and be a national model for successful downtown organizations.”
