Downtown Development Authority (DDA)

The purpose of the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is to halt property value deterioration, to increase property tax valuation in the business district, to eliminate the causes of deterioration and to promote economic growth. The DDA may acquire, own, lease, sell, construct, rehabilitate, equip, improve, maintain, or operate any building on land it may own.

The DDA is financed, from the capture of new revenues from incremental increases in property assessments occurring within the district.

DDA members are nominated by the Village President, and approved by the Village Council. The Village Council must approve the DDA improvement plan, its annual budget and its financing plan.

The proposed area for the Tamarack Lakeshore Development Plan

The Downtown Development Authority continuously works on projects that will make Lakeview a better place to live, work and play.

Currently, the DDA is working on a Tamarack Shoreline Development Plan that will include increased public fishing access, boat docking, park improvements, and other ways to connect our downtown to the lakeshore.
