A Downtown Steward is a person who displays diligence in the care and keeping of our downtown neighborhood. A good steward will use responsible, wise management and decision-making skills for the purpose of benefiting our district and the community as a whole. A steward’s actions take into account not only today’s success but also tomorrow’s prosperity, and are recognizable not only in downtown but to the community at large.
