Downtown Seattle Association/Metropolitan Improvement District

The Downtown Seattle Association (DSA) is the member-based non-profit organization focused exclusively on making Downtown Seattle a great place to live, work, shop and play.


The Downtown Seattle Association (DSA) is a non-profit community advocacy organization comprised of more than 2,000 member companies, organizations and Downtown residents. We’re dedicated to ensuring Downtown is the region’s top destination to live, work, shop and play. The DSA founded and operates the Metropolitan Improvement District (MID), a service district which implements neighborhood cleaning, hospitality and safety services as well as research, events, promotions, site location assistance and human services outreach for Downtown Seattle. In partnership with city and county agencies, DSA also founded Commute Seattle, which provides transportation resources for commuters and consulting services for Downtown businesses, property owners and managers.
