The mission of the Allen Park Downtown Development Authority is to revitalize and sustain long-term economic stability for downtown businesses in order to provide an attractive place to shop, live, work, and visit.
The DDA organizes its operations around the National Main Street Center’s proven Four Point Approach.
Downtown Allen Park drives the local economy. The DDA keeps the district strong by strengthening existing businesses, catalyzing new investment to diversify the commercial mix, and cultivating a strong entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Downtown is the heart of Allen Park’s culture, history, and community. The DDA both celebrates the past and welcomes today with carefully renovated buildings and people-centered public spaces to create a dynamic atmosphere like no other.
Downtown Allen Park is at the center of it all. DDA special events and marketing campaigns keep district streets hopping all year as tourists, locals, and investors flock downtown for fun.
Downtown Allen Park must be carefully tended. Like any other community asset, downtown needs strong leadership. The DDA builds organizational capacity, fosters broad community engagement, and forges partnerships across sectors to keep downtown thriving.
