Public Policy

We connect people and champion positive change.

Downtown Austin Alliance works to ensure planning decisions represent the needs of downtown’s people and places.


What do we mean when we say that the Downtown Austin Alliance is a “full-time advocate of downtown Austin?” That means we (DAA staff, boards, and committees) spend our days – and many nights and weekends – actively involved in planning decisions that impact the area’s people and places. We act as a liaison between property owners, government officials, community organizations, and individuals to ensure all parties are informed and all voices are heard.




We continually monitor and advocate for policy that enhances downtown’s economic prosperity and competitive advantage. At any given time, we’re involved in dozens of issues.



The DAA holds educational events throughout the year to help you learn about downtown issues and get tips for doing business here. We can also arrange speakers for your group.
