January 19, 2023 – Midlanders residing in the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) boundaries are invited to play an important role in the district’s future growth and development by applying to serve on the DDA’s Development Area Citizens Council (DACC).  

Michigan Public Act 57 of 2018 dictates that a development area containing 100 or more residents must establish a DACC to work with the local municipality during any amendments to the district’s TIF and development plan. Adoption of a new Downtown Midland Strategic Development and Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Plan is expected to occur in 2024. 

To qualify for appointment to the DACC, applicants must be at least 18 years of age and live in an owned or leased residential property that is located in the Downtown Development Authority district. Residents can verify that they live within the district boundaries by visiting the Map My Midland feature at, then selecting Planning & Development > Downtown Development Authority (DDA) from the Layers panel of the GIS application. The property must be located within the blue boundaries that designate the DDA area to qualify. Appointments are made by the city manager with a confirming vote by the Midland City Council. 

The DACC will include up to nine members and will hold no more than three meetings to review and discuss the Plan. This role requires a small time commitment.  The DACC will dissolve at the end of its third meeting or sooner if the findings and recommendations concerning the proposed development plan are complete. Meetings will take place in late February and early March. 

Applications will be accepted through Friday, February 2. To apply, visit
