The Braselton Downtown Development Authority is seeking to fill two seats on the seven-member authority.

Established in 2009, Braselton's DDA is an independent panel formed for the purposes of planning, organizing and financing projects to revitalize and redevelop the city's commercial district. Bylaws require members to either be a resident property owner or an owner or manager of a downtown business.

Chairman Clay Eubanks said, “The ideal applicant for the DDA board must attend one board meeting per month plus devote up to about ten hours per month to organizing and implementing projects and activities in downtown. Additionally, state law requires specific training for newly appointed DDA members in Georgia.”

The Braselton Town Council will make the official appointments with four-year terms beginning in July.
