Main Street Program


The City of Douglasville is a designated Main Street Community and adheres to the Main Street Four-Point Approach.™ 
The Main Street Approach advocates a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets: distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a sense of community. 

There are four distinct committees that address all the needs of the program. 
  • Organization
  • Design
  • Economic Vitality
  • Promotion 
The Main Street Professional manages the Main Street program and reports monthly to the Department of Community Affairs. 

Douglasville’s Downtown Development Authority (DDA) Board members serve as committee chairs for the Main Street committees. The DDA board guides policy, funding, and planning for the Main Street program. Typically, our volunteers represent business and property owners, residents, city officials, financial institutions, schools, religious institutions, civic groups, preservationists, media, etc. 

For more information about the Main Street Approach visit the Georgia Main Street website.
