The Dothan Downtown Redevelopment Authority is revitalizing Downtown Dothan through dynamic new and redeveloped property ventures, unique events, and interesting promotions.
The DDRA is the champion for a vibrant and economically strong Dothan Downtown. We work closely with the city of Dothan, Alabama, the Houston County Commission, the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, the Dothan Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, and all stakeholders and residents throughout the community. The Authority also works directly with private investors and developers to attract and encourage new development projects in the Downtown Dothan district.
Established in 1985, the Dothan Downtown Redevelopment Authority (DDRA) was formed to be a catalyst for the city’s redevelopment efforts, and to streamline the processes for private developers to build and remodel in the Dothan Downtown district. The DDRA was inactive for some time, but reformed in 2007 after a Southern tour of downtowns by the City Leaders. The organization is governed by a board of directors and led by a full time executive director.
The authority’s main responsibilities include:
A native Cajun from South Louisiana, Jamie brings that same spunk and zest for life to downtown Dothan. As a married mom of three she’s invested in creating quality of life, growing businesses and supporting a wealth of experiences for all families in the Wiregrass.
Saying yes to this position was probably one of the easiest decisions that I have ever made. I am so excited to be a part of the revitalization of our beautiful downtown. Growing our events, helping bring our downtown alive and then seeing how much our community benefits from it is incredible.
