  • About Main Street Metter

    Section Photo

    The Metter Main Street program is part of a national network of more than 1,200 active Main Street entities. It is an essential, community-driven initiative that focuses on the revitalization of older, traditional business districts throughout the U.S. The Metter Main Street program is a collaborative effort of downtown businesses, property owners, and other downtown stakeholders to revitalize, market and promote downtown Metter, and attract more people to Metter’s downtown to shop and dine. The success of the Metter Main Street Program is highlighted by its recognition by the Georgia Main Street Program in the category of “Highest Number of Attendance at Downtown Events.”

    The Metter Main Street Program works with the Metter-Candler Chamber of Commerce to promote the concept of “LOCAL First,” to highlight downtown business specials, to promote special events downtown to attract visitors, and to work with downtown business owners, building owners and supporters to revitalize and beautify Metter’s downtown commercial district.

    Main Street programs advocate a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets—distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership and a sense of community. Downtown Metter is important for its role as the historic commercial center of Candler County, and a number of downtown buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.

    The City of Metter Downtown Development Authority was established in 1985 and restructured in 2014 by the City of Metter in accordance with the Georgia Downtown Development Authority Act. The purpose of the Authority is to revitalize and redevelop the central business district of the City of Metter, Georgia; to develop and promote trade, commerce, industry and employment opportunities for the public good and general welfare; and to promote the general welfare of the State of Georgia by creating a climate favorable to the location of new industry, trade and commerce and the development of existing industry, trade and commerce within the City of Metter, Georgia.

    The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is primarily a policy-making and major decision-making entity that plans and manages the downtown area. The DDA:

    • is eligible to receive certain grant monies for which a local business or merchants association may not qualify
    • is considered to be governmental tax-exempt from an Internal Revenue perspective
    • can utilize a variety of financing tools outlined in the Official Code of Georgia. Money created from the implementation of these tools can be used to bring about revitalization and economic development of the central business district.
    • can work with volunteers from the local business association, citizens, the city and county to bring about the revitalization of the downtown area
    • often works in cooperation with the Metter Main Street program to revitalize and promote downtown Metter as a destination.
