Downtown Development Authority:

In April 1999, the City of Taylor adopted an ordinance to establish a Downtown Development Authority (DDA) to designate Development District boundaries within which the DDA may exercise powers. The Development District is comprised of properties fronting Goddard Road, between Telegraph and Allen Roads. The DDA is governed by a 13-member board appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council.

The intent of the DDA is to promote economic growth, to correct and prevent deterioration, to increase property tax valuation, and to enhance the physical environment of the Development District.

The DDA prepared a Development Plan designed to enhance the overall image of the corridor by carrying out a series of improvement activities and programs. This will be implemented during the 30-year life of the plan.
