Downtown Lewisburg - 2024 Board of Directors

Our Mission: We work to ensure downtown remains the heart and soul of Lewisburg

The Lewisburg Downtown Partnership is committed to providing effective, full-time management for the downtown business district.  Through the use of the Main Street Four Point Approach and our two targeted Transformation Strategies, the LDP works to bring together diverse community interests and resources. 

We work to increase foot traffic to the downtown district by holding special events and by sponsoring and promoting other non-profit organizations holding events in the downtown.  We create and execute promotional marketing plans supporting the business district and branding downtown Lewisburg as the place to visit for Arts, Entertainment and Dining in the region.  We are committed to promoting architectural and cultural heritage, beautification, and accessibility in our downtown.  We believe in a long-range, proactive and cooperative approach to business expansion and retention.  We believe in meaningful partnerships and good financial stewardship.

Our Vision: Downtown Lewisburg will be the cultural and economic magnet for the region
