ABOUT PARTNERSHIP WEST, INC.
Founded in December 2016 by visionary local government leaders, community not-for-profit institutions, and business owners, Partnership West Inc. "District Management Corporation” is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit that improves the quality of life in the West Ward, a “small town” within a big city.
As a steward of the neighborhood, PWI assists with helping get curbs and sidewalks clean and safe, public spaces are lushly planted, and current and new businesses are marketed for their quality and uniqueness. PWI also sponsors lively marketing events that showcase the West Ward.
PWI is a public-private partnership governed by a Board of Directors and run by an Executive Director. It derives its revenue from an annual special assessment on commercial properties and residential properties with four or more units, within the boundaries of the BID.
To professionally manage the organization so that our core values are delivered effectively to our customers, exceed their expectations and provide an experience of enhanced value and excellence.
We are a strong community connected to the world at the center of a growing and remarkable region; a hub of cultural diversity. We are committed to transforming this community into a safe district where businesses and residents thrive through responsible stewardship to realize its potential.
