"The Detroit Entertainment Commission (DEC) was established by Hon. Kwame Kenyatta’s resolution on June 24, 2008, from Atty Gregory J. Reed’s proposal, to serve as an advisory body to City Council. The DEC’s goals are attract, cultivate, and make citizens aware of business and cultural opportunities created by entertainment, cultural, athletic, film, and special events that occur within the City of Detroit."

The DEC meets in the Coleman Young Building in Detroit on the 13th floor.
