What is the U District Small Business association?

The U District Small business association is a collective of individuals who aim to preserve the unique characteristics of the U District. We aim to unlock the full potential of the U District while preserving the history and characters which have made the district such a unique place to visit and live in.

With a network of small business owners and volunteers, the UDSB is connecting the community to the development happening within the U District and are providing ways in which they can help contribute to the conversation, and to help preserve the unique businesses in the area.

We understand that without these unique businesses and the characters they host, the identity of the community becomes at risk of being lost in the development of the area.

With your help we may be able to keep the U District Unique.
