Overview

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is a municipal corporation created on February 24, 1981.

Responsibilities

The Downtown Development Authority, is a board of nine local business people and residents that together with the Mayor and our elected officials work to promote the economic growth, development and revitalization of our city's original Central Business District.

These responsibilities include the development and implementation of long range plans for public facilities and infrastructure, the acquisition and disposal of property, the restoration and preservation of all buildings and the correction and prevention of deterioration.

The DDA promotes economic development through capital improvement projects, with the intent that it will stimulate private investment, create jobs and expand the tax base.
