Above are the new lighting improvements to Delta Avenue. We wish to thank our Electric Provider, WPPI, for making this lighting improvement happen. Thank you for this and your support of the Home Decorating Contest through the December electric bill rebates to the top 20 homes.



Clean Money c
 
A Downtown Development Authority is a development agency responsible for many improvements to the downtown area.  The DDA financing mechanism allows for the capture of the incremental growth of local property taxes over a period of time to fund public infrastructure improvements. A community can capture property taxes which would have otherwise been paid to entities such as the library, community college and county, and instead use them for public improvements in targeted areas within the City.
 
The DDA Meetings occur the third Tuesday of the month 8:00 AM during COVID-19 via Zoom.

Facade Improvement Program

The Gladstone Downtown Development Authority TIF Plan includes a variety of specific goals for the DDA area.  Among these are provisions for a Facade Program.  At their regular meeting on July 7, 2002 the DDA Board approved the concept of a facade improvement program.


The Facade Program has a committee devoted to refining the process. The latest guidelines and application can be found in the Document Section under "Facade Program".

The 9th Street Project started with concerns over water issues in the alleys north and south of Delta Avenue. The completed project shown below was a total reconstruction of the alleys and not a simple repaving. It included new water lines, hookups to buildings and water drains. The inverted crown design shown below channels the water to the center of the alley and into the drains.
