The Downtown Development Districts Act of 2014 (the Act) was enacted by the General Assembly in order to:

  • Spur private capital investment in commercial business districts and other neighborhoods;

  • Stimulate job growth and improve the commercial vitality of such districts and neighborhoods;

  • Help build a stable community of long term residents by improving housing opportunities; and

  • Assist municipalities in strengthening neighborhoods while harnessing the attraction that vibrant downtowns hold for talented people, innovative small businesses and residents from all walks of life.
