There are many ways to support the work of Downtown Portland Clean & Safe. If you are a downtown restaurateur, hotelier or retailer, consider joining our Downtown Retail Council. Or, if you want to lend your voice to help impact public policy priorities consider joining the Central City Standing Committee.

Downtown Retail Council

The Downtown Retail Council (DRC) is the voice for Downtown Portland’s consumer business. Membership is open to retailers, restaurateurs and hoteliers within the Downtown Portland Clean & Safe District.

From working to develop and conduct cooperative retail promotions, to overseeing the implementation of the Downtown Retail Strategy and accessing market research that contributes to retailer success and retention, the DRC represents the collective interests of downtown retailers related to the public environment and public policy decisions.

Actions determined by the committee inform the Portland Business Alliance member-driven policy agenda and our advocacy work. Businesses located within the district are encouraged to participate.
