New Business District Manager Sought For Uptown Property & Community Association
2015-11-23 · By Editor
The Board of Directors for the Uptown Property & Communication Association recently accepted the resignation of Executive Director, Sean Duren, who has served the organization for the last year and a half.
“I have had the great privilege to oversee many exciting developments in Uptown and the Uptown business district organization,” said Duren, “and now the board and I agree that a new business district manager would best serve the organization, our stakeholders and the community.”
The Uptown Property & Community Association was formed over two years ago with much help from the City of Long Beach and property and business owners who want to see Uptown follow the development path of other revitalizing “BID” areas across the City.
Duren took the helm after the initial consultant team transitioned out and has helped establish the district’s Clean and Safe program which utilizes youth from Jordan High School and other community service worker programs. Duren also helped oversee and contribute to district-wide events like the Taste of Uptown, Beach Streets, Village Fest, Latin Jazz Festival, VetFest, UPTOWN Word and more.
Board President Yanki Greenspan commented, “We are proud of all of Uptown’s accomplishments over the last year and are grateful for Sean’s constant action to make our area great. Both Sean and the Board agree that Uptown is on the road to the renaissance and that a new manager will enable Uptown to move forward towards being Long Beach’s next business district.”
Duren will remain as the organization’s executive director until a new BID manager is hired.
The search for the new BID manager is now underway. The job description and application are located on Indeed.com. Applications will be accepted through December 15.
