Blackman Charter Township Downtown Development Authority

The Blackman Charter Township DDA (BDDA) was created by Ordinance No. 55 of the Blackman Charter Township Board on November 21, 1988. The district was created to encourage and assist development in the area primarily southwest of the I-94 and Airport Road interchange. In 1993, the BDDA was reinstated and boundaries were expanded to include a portion of Scheele Industrial Park northeast of the I-94 and Airport Road interchange and south on Airport Road to a point where a proposed waterline extension would connect with an existing water line on Argyle Road. The expansion also included several parcels of land adjacent to Meijer. In 2004, the BDDA expanded to the east with a northern border of Springport Road, an eastern border of US-127, and a southern border of the parcels along Boardman Road, back to the original Authority western boundary.
