The MDLDC provides expertise in Urban Planning, Business Revitalization, Community Development, Business Entrepreneurship and Business Services. Its passion is in creating business environments that are pedestrian friendly, attractive and supportive of business patrons. One method used to accomplish this is by establishing a self-assessing commercial improvement districts, made up of commercial property owners, that then plans and implements a revitalization strategy. This entity then arranges to provide for streetscape improvements, such as trees and furniture, and then manages the day to day operations of the entity.

A livable city is a sustainable city
