The Elizabeth Avenue Partnership (EAP) is a Downtown Management Corporation (DMC) specially designated by The City of Elizabeth to administer the Elizabeth Avenue Special Improvement District (SID), including Safety & Security, Image & Appearance, Promotions, Events and Quality Business Retention and Attraction. The EAP has accomplished a great deal in the above mentioned areas and was awarded the prestigious “Best of the Best” Award by Downtown New Jersey Inc., for “Excellence” in promoting the cultural diversity of the Elizabeth Avenue marketplace.
