From the Downtown Memphis Commission's website:
Downtown Memphis Commission
The Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC), formerly known as the Center City Commission, is the organization charged with advancing Memphis and Shelby County by making Downtown Memphis a better place to work, live, learn, invest and visit.
The DMC is funded by an assessment on commercial property in the Central Business Improvement District and is not funded by any city or county taxes.
The DMC's charge is to reinvest those funds for the continuned development of Downtown for the betterment of all of Memphis and Shelby County. Our City and County governments believe that a strong, vibrant Downtown serves as a vital economic engine that ultimately helps all communities throughout the county prosper and grow. As such, the City of Memphis and Shelby County governments established the Downtown Memphis Commission to capitalize on Downtown's role as the economic, cultural, and governmental heart of the city and county. The DMC is the official partnership between local government and the private business community in Downtown's development.
