Downtown Development Authority

Vicksburg DDA - About Us

The Vicksburg Downtown Development Authority (DDA) was formed February 3, 1986 by the Village of Vicksburg to enhance its downtown and plan and develop growth in its downtown district.


Downtown Vicksburg will be a premier destination which embraces our rich heritage by showcasing unique boutiques in historic store fronts, and offering dynamic dining, event and entertainment experiences along the shores of Sunset Lake.


The Vicksburg DDA provides incentives, support, and resources which will promote economic growth, while enhancing property values, and compelling businesses and citizens to live, work and invest in the downtown district.
