Learn About the Downtown Detroit Partnership

Our Initiatives

Business Improvement Zone

The Downtown Detroit Business Improvement Zone (BIZ) was created to keep Downtown Detroit clean, safe and beautiful. The BIZ offers cleaning, safety, hospitality, holiday lighting and landscaping services for residents, visitors, and business and property owners.

Parks and Placemaking

DDP operates, maintains, and programs Downtown’s parks — Beacon Park, Campus Martius Park, Cadillac Square, Capitol Park, and Grand Circus Park — providing world-class public spaces that help attract businesses and residents as well as catalyze new investment and development.


The DDP works in partnership with the City of Detroit, Detroit Economic Growth Corporation and other stakeholders to meaningfully participate in advancing Downtown development and policy initiatives. DDP administers comprehensive planning strategies to implement a collective vision that encourages Downtown growth and development.

Safety and Security

DDP works with the City of Detroit and community stakeholders to support an environment that provides resident and visitor personal safety. DDP provides a private and public strategy and implementation plan to address issues of real and perceived safety for residents, employees, businesses, and visitors throughout the Downtown.
