Downtown Vernon Association: businesses working together

Downtown-Vernon-Association-Civic-Sounds-Solymosi

Since 1967, the Downtown Vernon (DVA) has worked to promote Downtown Vernon as a unique and dynamic destination for entertainment, goods and services. We encourage people to shop local, support local businesses and participate in community events.

Through a variety of programs and services the DVA works to strengthen the economic vitality of Downtown Vernon. The DVA is not a stand-alone organization, nor a function of the City of Vernon. We are a Business Improvement Area (BIA) created by the businesses within our boundaries and funded by a commercial tax levy on properties within the BIA. This levy ensures a secure and equitable financial operating base, similar to the promotion and maintenance fees assessed by shopping malls. However, the mandate of the DVA is considerably greater and with a comparably smaller investment, the results are significant.

We seek to build strategic relationships and speak with a unified voice on behalf of our membership. Our goal is to help create economic prosperity and sustainability and make downtown Vernon a desirable destination.
