About Downtown Greater Council

What is the GDC

The Greater Downtown Council (GDC) is a private, nonprofit corporation that exists to promote and support the development of a clean, safe and vibrant Downtown Duluth. We work to enhance Duluth's Downtown Waterfront business climate by bringing together business, community and government leaders to focus on Downtown issues and opportunities.

With 300 artists and architects to residents and retailers as members, we all work to make Downtown Duluth a dynamic, attractive and prosperous place to live, work and play.

As Downtown prospers, we all prosper. And together, we are greater.
