Summit Downtown is a non-profit organization representing retailers and businesses in the Special Improvement District. The purpose of SDI is to foster the development and improvement of the quality of life in the business community in the downtown area. It is governed by a 21 member Board of Trustees comprised of downtown retailers and property owners, community residents, members of the Common Council, the Mayor and the City Administrator.
Tax revenues are dedicated to benefit downtown as well as the City of Summit. SDI promotes downtown and its retail/business community through print and online advertising throughout the year and events like the Annual Restaurant Week, Girl’s Night Out, Summit Farmers Market, Antique/Classic Car Show, Street Fair & Craft Show, Trick or Treat at Halloween, and December Holiday Events. They also partner with other non-profits such as the Summit Historical Society, Suburban Chambers of Commerce, Reeves-Reed Arboretum and Shaping Summit Together. The Board of Trustees meets the last Wednesday of each Month (except December) at 8 a.m. at City Hall.
