ADDC was established in August of 1989 and has accomplished many tasks over its 25 years in operation. Our purpose is to aid and promote the redevelopment, improvement, beautification, and revitalization of downtown Albemarle. The organization is governed by a board of directors selected by Albemarle City Council and consists of a small staff; the executive director and a part-time administrative assistant.
As a non-profit agency our funding is based on community support. We receive funds from the Municipal Service District (MSD), the City of Albemarle, donations, and through fundraising events like the Outdoorsman’s Bonanza. The remaining events and promotions that take place are sponsored events from downtown businesses and private sponsors.
ADDC is a member of the North Carolina Main Street Program, which helps promote the revitalization of NC downtown’s and helps to preserve their history. Our organization could not function without the support of the downtown businesses and our many volunteers. It is because of their selfless efforts that we can continue our mission.
