Dutchtown Summer Vibes is back! Join us in Downtown Dutchtown on Saturday, July 9th for live music, food and drink, shopping, kids’ activities, community resources, and more!
We were proud to see Dutchtown persevere and move forward through the pandemic in 2020. Hand in hand with our neighbors, DT2 · Downtown Dutchtown made great strides in organizing volunteers, welcoming new businesses, securing improvements at Marquette Park, and much more. You can read about our 2020 here.
Dutchtown-based developer Lutheran Development Group is always up for a challenge. At the tail end of 2021, LDG and their co-developer Rise Community Development announced that they had secured funds for the Marquette Homes project, adding 60 affordable apartments across 14 severely deteriorated buildings and vacant lots in Dutchtown and Gravois Park. Prior to that, this partnership resuscitated 15 buildings in the neighborhood with their Chippewa Park project. Now they’ve announced the acquisition and planned rehab of a long-troubled property at 3025 Chippewa Street.
Dutchtown Main Streets‘ Design Committee and the Dutchtown Community Improvement District want to help you spruce up your storefront! Businesses within the CID footprint can apply for grants of up to
$500 $1,000 for physical improvements to their street-facing façades. Our businesses’ front doors are the gateways to Dutchtown for many visitors, and an attractive entrance attracts economic activity and shows off the character of our neighborhood.
There’s great news in Dutchtown as 2021 comes to an end: Lutheran Development Group has received funding for Marquette Homes, a transformative project that will bring 60 new and rehabbed affordable housing units to the neighborhood!
