After years of planning and lots of hard work by the Bellaire Downtown Development Authority (DDA) Board, the Village of Bellaire recently approved a Development and Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Plan designed to promote economic growth in the DDA District and support an overall stronger community.

The Bellaire DDA Board looks forward to a busy 2017 filled with moving forward a handful of activities outlined in their recently adopted Downtown Development and TIF Plan.

Since the Bellaire DDA’s establishment in 2014, they have discussed and worked on a variety of projects of interest to area stakeholders including park improvements, downtown beautification, and infrastructure improvements including public walkways and parking, as well as wayfinding and parking signage.  

The DDA plans to build on their momentum and accomplish even more in 2017. A few of the projects identified in the Development and TIF Plan for action this year include: communicating with the Village and State regarding sidewalk plans; bicycle parking options; educational programs for downtown stakeholders; and creating a “buy local” program in partnership with the Chamber.
