Honoring Those Who Strive to Be the Change

The Near Northwest Management District is proud to be the organization fueling the revitalization of our community. However, it can't happen without the participation of all District business and property owners.

Many area business owners are refreshing the look of their property by putting up new signs, awnings and repainting. To encourage these efforts we want to recognize our business partners who are helping transform this community as Change Champions.

What is a Change Champion?

Thanks for asking! Change Champions are those who support the Livable Centers Plan by maintained and upgrading their property.

Have you repainted? Added lanscaping or new signage? Do you work with your fellow business owners to keep your property clean? We want to hear about anything you do to be the change in our community!
