The Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District (EID) was formed by property owners in the core of Downtown Evansville in late 2017.
Our Mission
The EID builds a more active and inclusive Downtown Evansville. We enhance resident, consumer, investor, worker, and visitor experiences in Downtown Evansville.

Our Vision
We will be acknowledged as the most vibrant urban district in the region, filled with unparalleled opportunities in which to live, work, learn, dine, invest, and play among great public spaces, happy people, and thriving businesses. We will be a resilient neighborhood, which cares for its own, as well as one that drives individual, family, organizational, city-wide and regional growth, prosperity and development.

Our Values
We act honestly and with transparency towards our property-owners, stakeholders, and the broader community. We value everyone who is in our neighborhood. We choose quality over quantity: good design matters to us. We respect history and our historic buildings, while looking towards the future. We develop our people to be community leaders.
