SUMMARY:

                                          

The Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) is a quasi-governmental, not-for-profit agency created in 1972 for the purpose of physically, economically and socially revitalizing downtown Pensacola.  The DIB coordinates the marketing and promotion of the 44-block central business core of downtown Pensacola.

 

The DIB was created by a Special Act of the Florida Legislature Section 72.662 and is to be composed of five (5) members appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council.  Members must be owners of realty within the downtown area, subject to ad valorem taxation, or a lessee thereof required by lease to pay taxes.  No voting member may be a City or County Officer or employee.

 

On June 27, 2019, Ms. Teri Levin submitted her resignation from the DIB with an effective date of July 1, 2019.  According to DIB bylaws, Article II, Section 2. Vacancy, it states in part, “…vacancy in office, which shall be filled in the manner hereinabove provided within thirty (30) days of its occurrence for the remainder of the unexpired term, shall occur whenever a member is removed from office, becomes disqualified or is otherwise unable to serve or resigns…”
