A Community Defining its Own Future.

Downtown Burlington is stewarded by the folks at the Burlington Downtown Corporation (BDC), a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to promoting downtown and offering support to existing and potential business and property owners. We’re a nationally accredited Main Street Community and associated with the North Carolina Main Street Center. Our mission is:

To create an environment for development that enhances Downtown Burlington as the cultural, historic, social and economic center of the community.



The BDC is staffed by a full-time Executive Director and Director of Communications.

Executive Board of Directors

The BDC is governed by a 15 member board of directors that is self-managed. Directors are drawn from the downtown community of property and business owners as well as from the community at large. In nominating board members an effort is made to include every interest that can bring resource and knowledge to the table in service of the organization’s mission. In addition to the 15 voting members, four ex-officio members make up the board, including a representative from the Alamance County Arts Council, and the following City of Burlington Departments:  Recreation and Parks, Planning and Economic Development, and Public Works. The following individuals currently serve as board members:
