The Pendleton Downtown Association is the catalyst for community-driven economic development and historic preservation in Downtown Pendleton. We create programs together with our partner organizations to support our member businesses, improve downtown design, and create effective promotion strategies.
We strive to develop partnerships that stimulate economic vitality and investment in the downtown core through sustainable, community-driven initiatives that celebrate our heritage. All of our received donations directly benefit downtown Pendleton.
We are a non-profit organization located in the heart of Eastern Oregon and we focus on the sustainable development of our downtown core through strategic, community-driven initiatives. These initiatives utilize the Main Street America Four Point Approach: Organization, Economic Vitality, Promotion, and Design.
As a Transforming Level Community within the Oregon Main Street program, we implement long-term planning as we seek to enhance the physical appearance of the district through the development of strategic design management systems and the rehabilitation of historic buildings. Utilizing the resources granted to us as a member of the National Main Street Center, we strengthen our district's existing and potential economic base by providing valuable resources and support to our members as well as developing marketing and promotion strategies.
We strive to serve with integrity, build open, honest relationships, and empower our community partners.

The PDA commits to advocating for those marginalized in our community and beyond while also continuing to educate ourselves, and our members accordingly, as language and the world around us evolve.
