The Tifton Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is a private/public authority structured to focus development within Downtown Tifton. The authority’s mission includes the revitalization and redevelopment of the central core business district of the City.
Tifton’s Main Street Program utilizes the four-point National Main Street approach to successfully transform our historic downtown into a thriving, vibrant hub for our citizens and visitors alike. Our progress is the result of public improvement projects, beautification efforts and landscaping maintenance, and increased private investment.
Tifton Main Street is a part of the Georgia Main Street Program and the National Main Street Program. Tifton is accredited as an elite Georgia Exceptional Main Street (GEMS) community designation from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
The DDA also provides advocacy and educational services. These range from recommending action through policies or ordinances by local government to providing updates to civic and social groups.
