Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance

Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance Logo

The Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance (DLBA) is a merchant association focused on making Downtown Lakewood one of the region’s best spots for dining, shopping, and playing. The association has 30 members who meet to plan events like the Lakewood Chocolate Walk and Breakfast with Santa. They also work together to beautify Downtown and work with other LakewoodAlive committees and partners at the City of Lakewood to address issues impacting customers and businesses.
