An Experience to Remember!
Downtown Pleasanton is a historic district of business and residential properties located in a relatively small geographic area in the southeast corner of the City of Pleasanton. In the year 2000, Pleasanton joined the ranks of certified California Main Street Communities, a designation bestowed by state's Trade and Commerce Agency under the auspices of the National Main Street Center. This esteemed recognition is a symbol of the community's economic health, local quality of life, civic pride, and community history and unity.
The Pleasanton Downtown Association
Downtown Pleasanton is home to over 575 businesses. In 1984, the City Council recognized this special business area with the creation of the Pleasanton Downtown Association (PDA). The PDA operates as an assessment district with the goal of developing and promoting a vibrant downtown community. It functions as a non-profit organization with funding provided by member assessments, matching City funds, sponsorships and revenue producing events.
As a Main Street Community, the PDA is organized under a four-point strategy that incorporates the elements of organization, economic restructuring, promotion and design or physical appearance. Successful implementation of this strategy involves a mutual effort by the PDA staff, business owners, property owners, Associate members and community volunteers.
