Learn How to Get Involved
Definitely De Pere is a community-driven organization; all of our events, projects, and success stories depend on volunteers from De Pere’s business and residential community. You can get involved volunteering for our events or serving on a committee with varying focuses and projects associated with them.
The De Pere Beautification Committee focuses on streetscape beautification projects and seasonal decorations, including seasonal flower beds, planters, hanging baskets and holiday decorations. If you have an interest in gardening, volunteering, and beautifying downtown De Pere, this committee would be a great fit for you.
The Design Committee plays a key role in shaping the physical image of downtown. Projects include streetscape, public art, facade rehabilitations, design review for future construction projects, signage consultation, and more. If you have an interest in historic preservation, architecture and public improvements, this committee is the place for you.
The Economic Enhancement Committee seeks to recruit new businesses to downtown De Pere, retain existing businesses. This committee works to identify new market opportunities for the district, find new uses for historic commercial buildings, and stimulate investment in property. If you are interested in economic development, planning, business services, finance, or market research, this committee is perfect for you.
The Promotions Committee promotes downtown as a center for commerce, culture and community life for residents and visitors alike through marketing and events. Work groups plan and coordinate all of Definitely De Pere’s seasonal events and tell the De Pere story to the surrounding region. If you are interested in event planning, marketing, public relations, bringing new events to De Pere, or tourism, this committee will draw your interest.
