Since the 70s when the Circleville Downtown Business Alliance originally started as the “Retail Merchants Association” there have been a variety of leaders who have helped first to start the organization and second of all continue it.  Thanks to every person who has served or helped in any capacity over the years to help maintain the historical shopping district of downtown Circleville.  Over that period the downtown area has changed more than any of us could have imagined and while our methods and styles may have change, the common goal of keeping the downtown area alive has not.  I don’t think any of us would have thought we would be working to “revitalize” what was once the very heart of our community.  With the help of the surrounding community the leadership of the Circleville DBA can and will continue to strive and move forward.
