Hammond Downtown Development District


The Hammond Downtown Development District is devoted to progressing and stimulating business development and diversity. We protect, unite, and rejuvenate the district in order to benefit residents and local commerce; making Downtown a promising place to socialize, do business, and call home.

The Hammond Downtown Development District has been designated as an accredited Main Street™ program for meeting rigorous performance standards. Each year, Main Street America and its partners announce the list of accredited programs to recognize their exceptional commitment to preservation-based economic development and community revitalization through the Main Street Approach™.

The Hammond DDD’s performance is annually evaluated by Louisiana Main Street which works in partnership with Main Street America to identify the local programs that meet 10 national performance standards. Evaluation criteria determines the communities that are building meaningful and sustainable revitalization programs and include standards such as, fostering strong public-private partnerships, documenting programmatic progress, and actively preserving historic buildings. The Hammond DDD is one of only 25 cities in the state of Louisiana; and the only city in Tangipahoa Parish to receive this distinction.
