The group is made up of 27 volunteers each elected for a two year term to represent Downtown homeowners and tenants, commercial property owners and businesses and community  organizations. The group provides a means for public participation relating to the growth and development of Downtown and serves as a communications link to the Civic San Diego Board, the Planning Commission and City Council.

DCPC meets monthly to review design proposals, conditional use permits, development and loan agreements and other downtown development policies and programs such as affordable housing, parking, transportation needs, street lighting, homelessness and social issues.
