Downtown Long Beach Alliance Features Shane Young

In this article, Young notes the various ways DLBA assists Downtown businesses, such as guidance with permitting and entitlement processes, analyzing and sharing data relevant to future and existing businesses, business development coaching, technical assistance workshops, access to grants and loans, and grand opening assistance.

“With DLBA, there is the opportunity for various forms of educational and monetary assistance, and there’s also some intangibles,” Young said. “Any local stakeholder will benefit from just becoming involved with DLBA. If someone is living or doing business in Downtown, there is no reason to not be involved because the Board welcomes public feedback.”
