Downtown Development Authority
The Doraville Downtown Development Authority (DDDA) was created by a Resolution of the Mayor and City Council on May 20, 2013. Pursuant to State law (OCGA 36-42-2), the body’s primary mission is to “revitalize and redevelop” the City’s central business district (map). In addition, the State tasks DDAs with promoting and developing “trade, commerce, industry and employment opportunities” for the general welfare of the State. To accomplish this, DDAs can receive grants and loans, acquire and improve property, enter into contracts and provide bond financing. The DDDA Board of Directors meets quarterly at City Hall. For more information, visit the DDDA webpage or contact the Economic Development Department at 770-451-8745.
