About the Commission

The Madison Downtown Development Commission (DDC) is a committee comprised of volunteer commissioners, representative merchants, residents, landlords, seniors, and other stakeholders that dedicate their time and energy into making positive improvements throughout Madison's commercial district.

Supporting the Community

The DDC supports Madison’s business district in many ways and organizes various promotions including Bottle Hill Day, May Day in Madison, Taste of Madison, and the Madison Farmers' Market.


The DDC has four standing committees that work throughout the year:
  • Arts & Events
  • Marketing and Economic Development
  • Public Improvement (PIC)
  • Sign & Façade

Community Partnerships

In addition, the DDC works closely with the Madison Chamber of Commerce, the Historic Preservation Commission, Madison Arts and Culture Alliance (MACA), and other key groups to enhance the beauty and ambiance of Madison’s shopping areas.
