Our Mission Statement

The Grass Valley Downtown Association represents its general membership with a unified voice in the economic development and historical preservation of downtown Grass Valley and our community.

We utilize the National Main Street Four Point Approach as the structure we use for supporting the beautification activities and community events that we host thus fostering a viable, healthy downtown business district that is recognized as one of California’s certified Main Street communities.

Inclusion Statement
