The DNP’s Merchants Committee exists to open and maintain lines of communication between the merchants of downtown Newark and the rest of the Partnership - the City, University and citizenry. This committee also seeks to establish events, programs and publications that make downtown Newark a destination for the entire family, as well as to advocate the viewpoints and address the concerns of downtown merchants to the City, State and University.
The Merchants’ Committee strives to improve the image of downtown Newark, as well as foster growth through promotion of the area. Using retail promotions, advertising campaigns, and by fostering strong and open communication both ways between merchants and the other participants in the Partnership, the committee works to keep Downtown Newark vibrant. Communication and coordination between the various participants are key responsibilities of this committee.
The Committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 8:15 AM at various locations in downtown Newark. To view monthly agendas or for additional information, check postings in City Hall or call 302-366-7030.
