Ithaca Downtown Business

Help DIA Can Provide

Because the Downtown Ithaca Alliance is charged with preserving and developing the central downtown core as the region's center for banking and finance, business and professional offices, government and community services, downtown residences, specialty shops, restaurants, arts and entertainment, the Downtown Ithaca Alliance is always available to help. While the Downtown Ithaca Alliance does not write business or developer plans, DIA staff can help you create them, will critique them, will help you understand and navigate through City codes, and can help with financial packaging.
