Downtown District Facade Improvement Program

The Clinton Township, Downtown Development Authority, offers a grant reimbursement program for brick-and-mortar improvements to commercial properties in the Downtown District. For more information, click here.


Since its inception in 2003, the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has completed three major projects that its work plan set out to accomplish.

  • New LED street lighting was placed in the median of Gratiot Avenue to make the DDA bright and inviting.
  • The DDA contracted with a company to install landscaping improvements in the Gratiot median.
  • The DDA installed new entrance signs at Gratiot's north, and south ends within the median to clearly define the DDA boundaries.

The DDA maintains all three improvements.

TIF Plan / Work Plan


The immediate goals of the DDA are to:

  • Start capturing revenues
  • Maintain investments made in the median of Gratiot
  • Promote the new Façade Improvement Program to enhance the corridor and generate additional tax revenues
  • Promote the Gratiot cruise
