What is the Greater Downtown Council?

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 as a catalyst to enhance Duluth’s Downtown Waterfront business climate by bringing together business, community, and government leaders to focus on Downtown issues and opportunities.

The GDC has more than 300 members, including artists and architects, bankers and brokers, residents and retailers...and all are a part of making Downtown Duluth, Minnesota a dynamic, attractive, and prosperous place. And, as Downtown prospers, so do we all. Together we are greater.
