Aiken Downtown Development Association is an organization made up of members and volunteers who all work toward a common goal: to improve the economic vitality, enhance the beauty and preserve the historical inheritance of downtown Aiken.
Through our members and volunteers, we work to build community relationships to help maintain the quality of life in our vibrant downtown that we have all come to love.
We plan different events throughout the year to draw focus on downtown Aiken and to bring people in to see what a variety of shops, restaurants and services we have to offer.
We work closely with the City of Aiken on policies and improvements that will help ensure that our downtown continues to be the jewel that it is.
We are a voice for our members at City Council and other meetings that have an impact on downtown Aiken, its businesses and residents.
We serve as support for projects that promise to help improve downtown Aiken. Some of the projects that we continue to support are: The Center for African American History, Art & Culture; the Aiken Railroad Depot and Visitors’ Center; and Celebrate Aiken.
