South Boston is a designated Virginia Main Street Community, where DDSB follows the Main Street Four Point Approach developed by the National Main Street Center as well as the new refreshed Main Street Approach, which is a common-sense, strategy driven framework that guides community-based revitalization efforts.
Leadership of DDSB is provided by a volunteer board of directors, an active committee structure, as well as one full-time executive director.
Newly elected officers of the board of directors of Destination Downtown South Boston (DDSB) are Treasurer Les Powell; Vice-President Frank Fincher of Finchers, Inc; Secretary Brandee Lloyd of Team Nurse; and President Gene Haugh.
DDSB is committed to ensuring the long-term viability of the downtown area as a center of commerce, a source of civic activity and pride, a resource for attracting new businesses and residents and a hub of educational and cultural opportunities.
Activities are focused in the areas of organization, design, economic vitality and promotion. DDSB’s work plan items are based on these areas.
Each year, DDSB volunteers contribute hours of service to make Downtown South Boston a better place. There are opportunities for members of the community with varying interests and amounts of time to dedicate.
