Dallas Downtown Association

Revitalizing the Heart of Our Community

The mission of the Dallas Downtown Association is to encourage and inspire the arts, restoration, economic vitality and community spirit in the historic downtown district of Dallas Oregon.

The Dallas Downtown Association (DDA) invites you to reflect on the importance of a vital, healthy downtown district. Our downtown is the heart of our community and what an honor it is to engage and be part of revitalizing downtown Dallas. 

As the traditional symbol of our community, the downtown district not only expresses our history but also speaks to our potential. As the central core of Dallas, our downtown should welcome and nurture retail businesses and help reinvest revenue from those businesses back into our community.

Increasing the availability of goods and services downtown will in turn attract visitors and increase foot traffic,  giving citizens and visitors a shared place to congregate. The creation and retention of new jobs in downtown Dallas will reflect positively on our community’s image and give a boost to the property values around our area.
