    Dominic_MissionInnovation is what sets great businesses apart from good businesses. At the San Luis Obispo Downtown Association we are privileged to represent some of the greatest businesses in America and as I work with our current Board of Directors, I am constantly made aware that they will be the people that kick off the next evolution of the Downtown Association.
