Downtown Economic Growth Authority

Next date: Monday, July 11, 2022 | 03:00 PM

The Downtown Economic Growth Authority (DEGA) was established by the Kalamazoo City Commission in October 2018 under the Corridor Improvement Authority (CIA) Act. Downtown authorities are designed to be catalysts in the development of a community’s downtown district and to assist with funding improvements along commercial corridors. Under the Act the DEGA has the authority to create a development plan, mapping out specific investments and improvements to be made within its boundaries, and to create a tax increment financing (TIF) plan identifying funding mechanisms.

Five of the members shall be persons having an ownership or business interest in property located in the development area and the Mayor is an ex-officio member. At least one member must be a resident of the development area or within ½ mile of the area.

The DEGA generally meets jointly with the Downtown Development Authority on the third Monday of each month at 3 p.m. in the Community Room at City Hall. 

Current Members:  
Grant Fletcher, Chair  
Susan Lindemann, Vice Chair  
Stephanie Hinman, Treasurer  
Patti Owens  
Laura Worline  
Rebekah Kik, Community Planning & Economic Development Director, City of Kalamazoo Staff Liaison
