Who We Are
The Culver City Downtown Business Association (DBA) is committed to creating the best possible experience for all those who work, live and play in Downtown Culver City while spreading the word throughout the region about everything that this hip and historic neighborhood has to offer. In addition to overseeing maintenance, parking and marketing programs we are the voice of all the small business owners who are the heart of our local economy.
What We Do
The DBA Clean Team is on the streets in downtown daily, providing a variety of services through sidewalk maintenance programs. Some of the services include sweeping and pressure washing throughout the district, emptying trash cans and cleaning street furniture, graffiti reporting, and cleaning and removing trash from sidewalks and tree wells. The DBA is also responsible for the maintenance and enhancement of the decorative tree lights throughout downtown.
The DBA Board and Staff work to develop marketing partnerships with new and established downtown businesses, as well as investigate tools to market downtown not only as a place to invest, but as a destination. The DBA produces the monthly 3rd Wednesday event where the community is invited to sample and enjoy foods, drinks, shops and entertainment throughout downtown. The DBA also partners with the City of Culver City and the downtown business community to create a festive holiday atmosphere for downtown and to produce the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony. In addition, the DBA is continually seeking out new and innovative partnership opportunities with other local business districts in Culver City and Los Angeles.
The DBA maintains proactive and ongoing communication with the City on matters related to downtown development and investment, as well as on existing codes related to aesthetics, safety of facades and streetscape, sanitation, and recycling. The DBA partners with City of Culver City and other organizations (Culver City Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Residents’ Association, etc.) on advocacy issues and initiatives that impact the quality of life in Downtown Culver City and remains in constant communication with the downtown business community about these and other issues which impact them.
