The revitalization of downtown Kalamazoo into a vibrant core is the result of years of strategic planning and partnerships. The D’s have worked to foster these vital alliances and the success would not have been possible without the energy and dedication of the volunteers that serve on their boards and committees. The composition of these entities includes: community leaders, business and property owners and entrepreneurs. With approximately 140 volunteers, the breadth and depth of the collective experience and acumen has enriched and strengthened the leadership of the D’s organizations. While the D’s efforts are focused on the downtown center, these endeavors have benefited the greater Kalamazoo community.
