OLD TAKOMA BUSINESS ASSOCIATION (OTBA)
The Old Takoma Business Association’s mission is to bring together businesses, residents and community organizations to build and sustain a vibrant commercial district and preserve the neighborhood’s rich history. Boundary lines are invisible to the OTBA- the focus is on the entire Takoma business district from the Takoma Junction in Takoma Park, MD to the Takoma Theater in Washington, DC. The OTBA works on issues essential to independently-owned, local business and to a thriving community.
The organization is a 501(c)(3) organization and governed by a board of directors elected by the OTBA membership. Members include area restaurants and cafes, retail and service businesses, non-profits, government contractors, community members and more. The OTBA is funded in part by grants from both the City of Takoma Park, MD and the District of Columbia.
