About Us

Our Mission

The Newark Downtown District (NDD), Newark’s special improvement district of the central business area, is a privately funded 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the beauty and vitality of downtown Newark.

The NDD works hard to enrich the quality of life for those who live, labor, and leisure in Newark by providing supplemental cleaning and quality of life services, as well as physical improvements, marketing, and event programs. These efforts make downtown Newark attractive to residents, businesses, students, tourists, and shoppers. 

The NDD is funded through a special assessment on district commercial and residential properties and is overseen by a Board of Trustees consisting of business and property owners within the District, representatives of non-profit organizations, as well as municipal officials and staff.

The NDD’s Tax ID number is 22-3646316.
