Charged with formulating policy and planning public improvements to spur development in Buchanan’s central business district, state law has established DDA’s as the prime vehicle for promoting economic development in downtown areas across Michigan. Examples of possible DDA activities include the formulation of downtown development, parking, beautification plans, the conducting of market studies, promotion of special events, and technical assistance to downtown businesses to help them remain competitive in today’s economy.
The DDA works closely with other community development groups, Chamber of Commerce, Common Committee, Farmers Market Board, Preservation Society, Joint Committee, Friends of McCoy's Creek Trail Committee and the Buchanan Garden Club.
