In 2005, the Meridian Township Board adopted Ordinance 2005-12 creating the Meridian Township Downtown Development Authority (DDA) to encompass the area commonly referred to as “Downtown Okemos” and/or commonly known as the “Okemos Village Area.”

The DDA was created to halt property value deterioration and increase property tax valuation where possible in its business district, to eliminate the causes of such deterioration and to promote economic growth in and surrounding the Downtown Development Authority District. The DDA is a 12-member board that includes those who own or manage commercial property in the downtown area or those who live in the DDA district.
