About Tallahassee Downtown

The Tallahassee Downtown Improvement Authority (TDIA) was created by an act of the Florida Legislature in 1971. This act created a special assessment district to assist in the promotion of downtown for redevelopment, a place to do business and for hospitality. The TDIA is governed by an eleven-member board of directors that are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Tallahassee. Members of the board have rotating terms and can be reappointed. Board members must be property owners and taxpayers in the TDIA downtown district. The activities of the TDIA include:

  • Development planning
  • Public improvements
  • Special events
  • Promotions
  • Beautification
