About the DDA

Downtown Development Authorities began in Michigan in 1975 with the goal of revitalizing downtown areas which had seen a decline in patronage following World War II. To bring people back to downtowns, the DDA programs invest dollars and expertise to local projects and upgrading public areas.

The Blissfield DDA/Main Street organization was founded on June 23, 2010 by Governor Jennifer Granholm. Since then, volunteers have put in tens of thousands of hours to make this program a success. Their efforts have produced exciting events and projects aimed at improving and celebrating our great historic community.

Village of Blissfield DDA TIF PLAN - What is a TIF Plan? Tax-increment financing (TIF) is a redevelopment tool that allows increased property taxes generated because of new development to be captured by a separate legal taxing authority.
