Hilo Downtown Improvement Association and their Founding Partners–working together with the support of the County of Hawai’i to protect, preserve, and create a vibrant downtown for all to enjoy.
OUR FOUNDING PARTNERS
WELCOME TO THE HILO DOWNTOWN IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION!
The Hilo Downtown DIA is the only collaborative voice representing the interests of our downtown. Formed in the aftermath of the 1960 tsunami to help steer restoration efforts, DIA is now 50+ years strong. DIA works to preserve and revitalize our historic waterfront district for all who visit, work, live, and shop in downtown Hilo.
Braiding the voices of Hilo – moving forward together.
DIA is staffed by a volunteer Board of Directors, our work is funded by membership dues, grants, and special events. DIA has six committees, each chaired by a member of the DIA Board, to address different projects in our downtown: Beautification, Events, Membership, Marketing, Planning and Government Affairs, and Safety. Want to get involved? Have talent you can share or a particular area of interest? Our Committees would love to have your involvement!
