The City of Pinconning City Council will be conducting a public hearing on Tuesday, January 21, 2020, during its regular City Council meeting which will be held at 208 Manitou Street that will begin at 6:00 p.m., local time.  The City Council is considering an amendment to Ordinances No. 7 and 8, which will amend the Development Plan for the City of Pinconning Downtown Development Authority (“DDA”) and extend the tax increment financing plan for the DDA and additional 20 years.  THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT DOES NOT INCREASE ANY TAXES OR PROPOSE ANY NEW MILLAGES.  Maps, plats, and a description of the development plan, including the method of relocating families and individuals who may be displaced from the area, are available for public inspection during normal business hours at the Pinconning City Hall, which is located at the address provided above.  THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN DOES NOT CONTEMPLATE ANY INDIVIDUALS OR FAMILIES BEING RELOCATED OR DISPLACED.  At the public hearing, all aspects of the development plan will be open for discussion.  The area to which the Development Plan and Tax Increment Financing Plan apply in relation to highways, streets, streams, or otherwise is shown on the shaded area of the map provided below:

The Pinconning Downtown Development Authority was formed in 1989 with the goal of continually improving the functioning and economic development of the Downtown area. Here’s a deeper dive into DDA history. Over the years, many local businesses have benefited from our Business Improvement Program. We’re looking forward to continually improve the space for a prosperous Pinconning, Michigan. 


Current Projects:

Community Building Improvements

Ramping up the use of the Pinconning Community Building. First, the DDA has proudly installed necessities for handicapped accessibility. We’ve streamlined the rental process for use of the building and supplied new tables and chairs for use of its renters. We’re in the process of applying for a 501c3 and grants to support the continual growth of the Community Building.


New City of Pinconning Signs

The DDA has funded the implementation of three new ‘Welcome’ signs upon entering the City of Pinconning. These are automatic signs that allow Public Service Announcements and area business advertisements to be displayed for all residents and tourists. Strategically, these signs will be maintained and improved by the Pinconning Linwood Chamber of Commerce.


Doc Letchfield Park

This year at Doc Letchfield Park, the DDA has funded upgrades to the pavilion and new nets for the batting cages.


Immediate Past Projects:


Take a look at some of our welcoming Christmas decor, new flags, and curb painting! 


Area Wide Website

The DDA has built and maintains this area-wide website for use of anything Pinconning. Residents can use it for Pinconning area resources, business directory, events and more. Have a community event to share? Let us know!


Ongoing Projects:

Fund Updated City Planning Strategies

Pinconning’s City Master and Target Marketing Plans were last updated in the 1990’s. It is our goal to bring Pinconning up to speed and develop cooperation of all entities to avoid duplication of assets and streamlining the process of maintaining community buildings and parks and the future funding these entities require. 


Cooperative Projects with the City Government

With the help of our budget and grants, we can aid in rebuilding and maintaining City streets and infrastructure. This year, the DDA was able to help the City receive new sewer water pumps.
