The Historic District Development Corporation (HDDC) is a community-based, nonprofit organization whose mission is to facilitate the preservation and revitalization of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic District and other historic/preservation communities. Our commitment encompasses 3 ideals.
1. Historic preservation—retaining the historic and cultural character of the existing community;
2. Non-displacement—maintaining neighborhood diversity by intervening and improving life opportunities for residents; and
3. Sustainability—linking mixed-income, mixed-use development to sustainable economic growth, thereby creating an environment where families can be self-sufficient.
