The Downtown Economic Revitalization Commission was established in 2006, and was renamed the Uptown Development Commission in 2010, to assist the Mayor and City Council in bringing new and exciting development into our uptown area. The mission statement of UDC is "Create a Vibrant Uptown". Duties of the Commission are: to assist with TIF distributions by making recommendations to the City Council, to continue and facilitate events in the downtown area, to oversee public input, and to promote the City. The Commission consists of 12 members representing various businesses and organizations throughout the downtown area and meets monthly on the third Tuesday of the month at City Hall at 6:00 p.m. The Commission members are appointed by the Mayor with concurrence by the Council. The Commission is supported by the Uptown Coordinator, and a Council member who serves as liaison to the Commission.

Uptown Development Commission Members are appointed to 3-year terms by the Mayor and with the consent of the City Council.
