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:
  • Mayor
  • Borough Council Representative
  • Resident Representative
  • Merchant/Landlord/Business Owner (4 reps)
  • Higher Education Representative
  • Nonprofit Representative
  • Corporate Representative
  • Board of Education Representative
  • Planning Board Representative
  • Senior Representative
  • Media 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.
