Economic & Marketing Strategy

In January 2016, over 100 Downtown Dearborn stakeholders came together to discuss the vision and needs of the downtown communities, both East and West, in Dearborn. Through this community meeting, as well as numerous follow up meetings with both DDA Boards, committees and local organizations, the Economic & Marketing Strategy was developed. This document charts our Transformational Strategies and goals, as well as what actions are needed to achieve these goals. Downtown Dearborn is well on-track in accomplishing many of these goals.
