It is a thirteen-member board made up of City residents and non-residents, with a majority of the board having an interest in property within the Development District and at least one member residing in the District. The Mayor appoints twelve members to the DDA for four-year terms expiring 01 August and the Mayor serves as the thirteenth member during their Mayoral term. The DDA regularly meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 310 Greenwood St.
