-- WHAT IS IT? --

Each year, there are organizations and individuals whose positive impact on revitalization efforts in Historic Downtown Bryan is simply extraordinary.

The Mayor's Downtown Impact Award, created in 2000, celebrates progress in the city's oldest business district, while recognizing those who go above and beyond to contribute to this progress.


-- WHAT YOU CAN DO --
