Historic downtown Milan is a warm and charming community where residents and visitors come together to enjoy fun events, arts & culture, and local businesses in a family-friendly atmosphere.

The mission of Milan Main Street (DDA) is to restore vitality to our downtown through community efforts including volunteers, business and property owners, and public and private partnerships.

Milan is one of less than 30 communities in the state of Michigan to be recognized as part of the Michigan Main Street program. The Main Street program utilizes a Four Point Approach that includes Design, Promotions, Organization, and Economic Vitality.

All of the committees and the staff of Milan Main Street/DDA function under a governing board of city officials, business owners and appointed members of the local community.
