Downtown Development Authority

The History of the Kingsland Downtown Development Authority (KDDA)

Kingsland was a Main Street Community when the program was first introduced by the State of Georgia in the 1980’s. During this time, the streets in downtown Kingsland were paved with brick pavers and an antique clock and lamp post were installed.

The program went through various stages of management and growth and was re-designated as a Main Street Community in 2009 and continues to utilize the Main Street 4-Point approach in order to maintain the designation each year.

Recent & Future Improvements

Recent improvements to downtown Kingsland include the Royal District Mural Series, installation of Dahoon Hollies and Crape Myrtles, Kingsland Veterans Memorial Park and the rehabilitation of the Kingsland Depot.

Future improvements include additional landscaping and the continuation of the brick paved sidewalks.

The Kingsland DDA offers a Facade Improvement Grant, Design Assistance and Free Email Marketing Services to any business in the downtown Kingsland district.

Lovetown USA

Kingsland is also looking forward to the airing of Lovetown USA in the summer of 2012. The OWN and BBC networks used the Kingsland Depot as their filming headquarters for 30 days in February and March of 2012.
