Bringing Counties And Cities Together To Address Regional Issues And Promote Economic Development - Building A Better Tennessee

Tennessee Development District Association
 

The Tennessee Development District Association (TDDA) is an association of the nine state-wide development districts, which were established by the General Assembly under the Tennessee Development District Act of 1965.

The Act established a statewide system of nine (9) regional planning and economic development organizations to promote intergovernmental cooperation on growth and development issues, including regional and statewide concerns. The organizations also promote more effective utilization of available resources in dealing with these needs.

The Board Membership for each Development District is made up of the chief elected officials from member counties and cities, a designated economic development professional from each county, and one Senator and one State Representative from within each region.

The Tennessee Development District Association was established to serve as a statewide forum for the diverse problems the Districts must solve in their mission to serve 95 counties and some 350 municipalities.
