Jackson Downtown Development Authority (DDA)

Today there are nearly three hundred (300) active Downtown Development Authorities throughout Michigan. DDA's are enabled by Public Act 197 of 1975, as amended and operate as special purpose authorities appointed by local governing bodies to carry out specific tasks. These include the planning and improvement of downtown areas through the construction of a broad range of eligible public facilities (e.g. streetscape, utilities, parks, landscaping, pathways etc.) and assistance to developers in the improvement of real estate within the DDA's Development Area.
