Our organization

The City of Three Rivers Downtown Development Authority (DDA) was established in 1980 in accordance with Michigan Act 197 of 1975. The basic purpose of this Authority is to reestablish and maintain the vitality of the historic downtown area of our City. The DDA district encompasses approximately 225 properties.

The objectives of the DDA are to recruit new businesses, rehabilitate buildings, expand parking, strengthen public participation, and make the downtown a destination, a fun place to visit.



The Three Rivers Downtown Development Authority exists to create an environment within the District to inspire public and private investment; to attract and provide local residents a vibrant space to explore; and to foster and strengthen connections between city government and local businesses to boost commerce in the District. The DDA further seeks to maintain our distinctive sense of community while enhancing our Main Street atmosphere.
