Avondale Estates seeking two new members of Downtown Development Authority
The city of Avondale Estates has two openings for positions on the board of the Downtown Development Authority, according to a city newsletter.
The DDA oversees the revitalization and redevelopment of the downtown development area in Avondale Estates, according to the organization’s website. In addition, the group develops and promotes welfare trade, commerce, industry and employment opportunities.
Comprised of seven directors total, three DDA directors must be Avondale residents, and at least four directors must, “in the judgment of the governing body of the municipal corporation, either have or represent a party who has an economic interest in the redevelopment and revitalization of the downtown development area,” according to the city.
One of the two positions currently open applies to the first category – Avondale residents – and the other applies to the second – someone with an economic interest in developing the downtown area.
Directors are appointed by the Board of Mayor and Commissioners (BOMC) to serve four-year terms and also serve as the Main Street Board, the city said.=
Applications for the position must be submitted by Friday, Nov. 8 at 5 p.m. To apply for any of the above openings, you may submit your application online. You may also download an application in PDF format and send it via email to Gina Hill, hand-deliver it to City Hall or mail it to City Hall, located at 21 North Avondale Plaza.
Applicants will be asked to appear at the next regular DDA meeting, on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Avondale’s City Hall, for some discussion and possible questions. The DDA will then make recommendations to the BOMC, who has the ultimate responsibility to appoint the new directors.
