The Main Street approach relies on community volunteers to help lead these initiatives. The following are specific ways you can get involved.

Join A Committee

Have fun while improving your community. Volunteer committee members are responsible for every DDA success – past, present, and future. This is where the DDA’s most important work is accomplished, where all the nuts and bolts are worked out to transform a general concept into a living, breathing project. The DDA is looking for committed volunteers to continue growing downtown Allen Park. Come join us!


Serve on a team dedicated to fostering a vibrant, pedestrian friendly district. This committee concentrates on every aspect of downtown’s appearance, from rehabilitating individual buildings to redesigning entire streets. Nothing is too big or too small for this committee’s attention.
