DSP Board

​The DSP board meets monthly on the fourth Wednesday of the month to discuss budget, management and program delivery issues on behalf of the DSP membership, setting policies and strategic direction to build a more vital downtown.

2016 DSP Chair
Brendan Wiechert

How does downtown best work together as a community?

I obviously have a personal bias, but a healthy Downtown Spokane Partnership is critical to the ongoing success of both the downtown and the City of Spokane. DSP is not able to lead all efforts in and around downtown, but it is uniquely connected to all facets of its development and success.  DSP supports and shares in the addition and success of every new business, venue, fountain, statue, bench, trashcan, and even parking meters.
