The Downtown Business Association of Charlottesville (DBAC) is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes commerce in downtown Charlottesville.

The Downtown Business Association of Charlottesville (DBAC) is an association created, managed, and funded by a group of Downtown's merchants, restaurants, and other interested businesses. Their goal is to raise recognition of the wide variety the area has to offer. Overall, they aim to market and support the Mall by shaping the Downtown Mall into one cohesive network.


In December 2014, the group asked City Council to consider charging for on-street parking. [1]
