The mission of the Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress is to provide sustainable leadership, direction,and support for the successful, efficient revitalization and long-term success of downtown Hazleton.
We want to make the downtown an exciting and vibrant place to live, work, and visit again. We will do this by attracting new businesses, supporting and strengthening existing businesses, promoting cultural institutions and programs, finding new uses for historic buildings, and making the downtown safer, cleaner, and greener.
Who we are
Believing that progress is dependent upon Public-Private Partnerships, the Alliance includes representation from the City of Hazleton, the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, CAN DO, the CAN DO Community Foundation, the DBi/Hayden Partnership, and leadership from within the Latino community. We realize that in order for this effort to succeed, we must share the rebuilding effort with all members of our community — including those residents and business owners who have been here for generations, our youth who have all the energy and are seeking new opportunities, and the hard-working newcomers who are now making Hazleton their home.
