The Trenton Downtown Development Authority was created by City Council in 1996 to serve as a mechanism for the revitalization of the city's treasured downtown area. The enabling legislation for such authorities is Public Act 197 of 1975, which allows the creation of DDAs to "correct and prevent deterioration... promote economic growth and revitalization (and to) encourage historic preservation." The intent is to spur additional private investment and other economic development. This approach is called Tax Increment Financing. The current Authority is comprised of 11 members who were appointed by the Mayor and Council. Additional information can be obtained through the Mayor's Office at City Hall. The group is currently looking for an additional board member.
