Downtown

Formed by state legislation in 1977, the Athens Downtown Development Authority (ADDA) administers the revitalization & redevelopment of the Central Business District. The ADDA encourages and promotes the economic improvement, redevelopment, and rehabilitation of the downtown area and makes long-range plans in cooperation with the Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County.

The ADDA mission is to promote, to maintain, and to enhance a safe and economically viable central business district by focusing both public and private resources on the fulfillment of downtown’s potential to benefit the entire community. ADDA exists to create an economically sustainable, vibrant, and viable downtown; to create an environment that attracts people and investments; to be an advocacy group for downtown constituents; and to promote downtown to residents, businesses, and visitors.
