To fulfill our mission, the Elmwood Village Association has member committees composed of a combination of board members, community professionals, and member volunteers. Each group is charged with developing and implementing projects to improve quality of life in Elmwood Village. Committees are inspired by the Main Street Four Point Approach.
The Design Committee reviews, develops, and makes recommendations on
grants and programs that contribute to accessible, inclusive, people-centered
public spaces in the Elmwood Village. Efforts of the Design Committee are
guided by community planning efforts, such as “Elmwood Conversations.”
Sub-Committees: Beautification, BMSI Streetscape & Project Selection,
Economic Development & Revitalization
The Economic Development Committee (EDC) reviews, develops, and makes
recommendations on programs and incentives that assist new and existing
businesses and promote economic diversity and entrepreneurship. The EDC
also reviews use of EBT/SNAP/DUFB programs and management and seeks
additional opportunities relating to the Elmwood Village Farmers Market.
Activities/Programs: Merchant Meetings and Socials
The Promotion Committee oversees and recommends marketing, PR, and
communications activities for both the Elmwood Village Association and the
Elmwood Village district. The goal of this committee is to promote a positive
image of both the organization and the district.
