Downtown Development Commission
The Downtown Development Commission (DDC) was initiated by Mayor Elizabeth Baumgartner and the Borough Council in October 1981, following a study by Projects for Public Space, funded through a Dodge Foundation Grant.
Since this time, the DDC has been advocating for the Downtown. The Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor and Council and represent a cross section of the community with specific representatives that include:
Borough Council Representative
Merchant/Landlord/Business Owner (4 reps)
Higher Education Representative
Board of Education Representative
Planning Board Representative
At Large (4 Representatives)
The creation of the DDC was a watershed moment in the history of the downtown because it intentionally promoted the need for the entire community to support Madison's commercial district. As a result, the entire town better understands how important a vibrant Main Street is to the community.
