Paul Young is Thankful for all that Downtown Memphis brings to our City!
Local & National News | December 30, 2021
Join us for a look at the Downtown Memphis Commission: Mission and Primary Metrics

Paul Young has spent his professional life advocating for our city. While most see politics in colors or Black or White, Red or Blue, Paul looks at his role as an advocate for what is good for all and what can be accomplished. He is a guy that listens to all sides of an issue and then works to bridge the gaps together to create a win/win for everyone. This might not always be possible, but it never stops Paul from moving forward. The #FunCrew of JustMyMemphis caught up with Paul as we wrap this year up. We wanted to know, what was he thankful for this year!

Downtown Memphis Commission: Mission and Primary Metrics

The Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC) drives Downtown’s role as the economic, cultural, and governmental core of our city and county.

The DMC is funded by an assessment on commercial property in the Central Business Improvement District (CBID), which is reinvested into funding incentives and activations designed to support the growth of both Downtown’s population and appraised commercial property values.

Through our investment in Downtown development, infrastructure, vibrancy, and activation, we are creating a stronger Downtown Memphis—a Downtown for everyone.

Learn more on the DMC’s State of Downtown Dashboard.

The DMC’s two primary metrics for success are:

1) an increase in the number of people living, working and engaging in Downtown, and
2) an increase in Downtown commercial property values

To accomplish these goals, the DMC implements a variety of programs and tools to foster development and investment and to make Downtown active, walkable, clean, safe, inclusive, and interesting.  View our programs and our boundary map.
