The Port Angeles Downtown Association welcomes you to Downtown. Downtown is a great place to do business. A vibrant Downtown is the heart of the community.
The association was formed in 1983 and became a Main Street™ program in 1991. Our office is located at 208 North Laurel in the Chase Bank Building.
In 1985, a Parking Business Improvement Area (PBIA) was established by the City of Port Angeles as a funding mechanism for the association at the request of the Downtown business community. The Downtown association manages the PBIA for the City. All businesses within the boundaries of the PBIA are members of the Port Angeles Downtown association. Additionally, businesses outside of the Central Business District (CBD) and individuals in the community can also become members.
The Port Angeles Downtown works with its members, the City and the community to oversee the economy, appearance, and the image of Downtown. We host numerous special events throughout the year such as Halloween Trick or Treat, and the Community Tree Lighting and other retail promotions. Art on the Town™, a very successful and nationally acclaimed project was started in 1999. In addition, the association works with other organizations sponsoring events in the downtown year round. A Calendar of Events happening in downtown can be found on the News page of this website.
We deliver a monthly newsletter to our members (with archived editions available in the News section of this website). We coordinate the Christmas Decorations including the pole decorations and street tree lights. We work with the City in maintaining the downtown streetscape and we have created and installed new benches for Downtown.
The Port Angeles Downtown association is a non-profit organization operated by a board of directors with an Executive Director using the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street program . We are funded through a parking management and Main Street contracts with the City of Port Angeles, PBIA assessments, associate memberships and funds received through the Washington State Main Street Tax Incentive program. For more information about our plans, goals, and objectives, visit our office and attend our general meetings. You are encouraged to join any of our committees: Promotion, Design, Business Development, Organization and Parking. For meeting schedules refer to the website calendar, meeting schedule.
We look forward to working in partnership with you to help you create a successful future for your business.
