A clean, friendly, growing downtown.
The DDA’s vision is a downtown that is stable and growing; encourages economic development and business diversity; is walk-able and pedestrian friendly; and is safe and clean. This is a downtown in which business, residents and visitors can take pride, visit frequently, and use to its fullest potential.
The mission of the Downtown Development Association is to advocate for, promote, grow and improve our downtown community.
