Oregon's Favorite Main Street
The mission of McMinnville Downtown Association (MDA) is to sustain and enhance historic downtown McMinnville as the cultural, retail and professional heart of the community.
Since it was established in 1986, the MDA has become a model for downtown districts. A vibrant assortment of unique, locally owned retail shops in the downtown core underscores the low vacancy rate. The healthy mixture of retail, office, residential and other uses maintains a diverse and energetic downtown.
The MDA contracts with the City of McMinnville to manage the city's downtown Economic Improvement District. That work is financed by a city assessment on downtown properties, and a contribution from the city's general fund in lieu of assessments that might be applied to city-owned property.
We work with property and business owners on a wide variety of projects seeking to assist with development projects and improve the general economic climate. We provide a unified and influential voice on downtown policies, legislative decisions, parking, streetscape issues, safety and beautification.
The MDA produces and promotes events that are designed to increase customer traffic and establish the downtown as the place for the community and visitors to meet, shop, dine and enjoy the historic ambiance. Since membership dues are dedicated solely to promotions, a strong membership base produces improved promotional efforts that enhance the entire downtown.
The McMinnville Downtown Association works to promote and enhance our historic downtown as the economic, social and cultural heart of the community.
