Downtown Mobile Alliance


Elizabeth P. Stevens has served as the President and CEO of the Downtown Mobile Alliance since its formation in 2005. The Downtown Mobile Alliance is a consortium of three not-for-profits working to support the development of Downtown Mobile. The Business Improvement District, or “BID,” is a property owner-funded special assessment district that provides enhanced services to the property owners within the district’s 75 block area. The BID provides intensive cleaning, hospitality, and beautification services along the property owners’ sidewalks and economic development and promotion activities for the district’s property owners. The Alliance also operates a business membership organization charged with promoting downtown business expansion through marketing and policy work, and the philanthropic Main Street Mobile to raise grants and donations for special projects including a newly launched land bank and revolving fund for affordable housing.


Ms. Stevens has worked in downtown development since 1985 in her native South Carolina as well as Alabama. She started the Main Street Program in Conway, South Carolina, and then in 1990 at the City of Mobile.


She currently serves as one of the Governor’s appointees to the Alabama Historic Commission. In 2017, Ms. Stevens was appointed to serve as a Trustee to the Alabama Department of Archives and History. She is President of the Barton Academy Foundation and serves on the board of directors of Springboard to Success, Mobile Bay Convention & Visitors Bureau, Mobile Rotary, and Innovation PortAL. Ms. Stevens is a graduate of the 2014-15 class of Leadership Alabama.


Ms. Stevens is a native of Charleston, South Carolina, a graduate of the College of Charleston.
