Downtown Development Authority (DDA)
 
The City of Gladstone Downtown Development Authority (DDA) was established in 1992 to enhance the quality of life for the City of Gladstone residents and develop a positive image of Downtown Gladstone for businesses, residents and visitors.
 
A Downtown Development Authority is a development agency responsible for many improvements to the downtown area.  The DDA financing mechanism allows for the capture of the incremental growth of local property taxes over a period of time to fund public infrastructure improvements. A community can capture property taxes which would have otherwise been paid to entities such as the library, community college and county, and instead use them for public improvements in targeted areas within the City.
 
The DDA Meetings occur the third Tuesday of the month 8:00 AM at Gladstone Electric Dept. Conference Room located at 10 North 11th Street (behind City Hall).

Facade Improvement Program

The Gladstone Downtown Development Authority TIF Plan includes a variety of specific goals for the DDA area.  Among these are provisions for a Storefront Improvement Program.  This activity was budgeted at $100,000 in the original plan.  At their regular meeting on July 7, 2002 the DDA Board approved the concept of a facade improvement program. Facade Guidelines available here.
