Your Hometown Downtown







Some people want it to happen, some wish it to happen, others make it happen.

The Highland DDA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving and revitalizing the downtown district. It is an organization made up of residents, business owners, property owners, industry owners/operators, community leaders, volunteers, and interested citizens from our community. It is community-minded people like you who accomplish the tasks, gather the resources and help us reach our goals and set new ones. Each small success is added to the overall mission of Main Street to create overall growth and renewal. We can always use more help!

We are a designated Main Street Oakland County program and follow the National Main Street Centerís Four-Point Approach model, which is successful in over 1,200 communities across the U.S. The Four Points (Design, Promotion, Economic Restructuring/Business Development and Organization) provide a proven comprehensive method for downtown revitalization. Our funding comes from both the public and private sectors, illustrating the importance of the downtown district to both areas.

Your participation will help bring about positive results for downtown and make our mission a reality. If you want to make our downtown an even better place to live, work, and play, then we would like for you to be a part of our growing team.

You can give as little or as much time as you would like.
