The Manistee Downtown Development Authority has a nine-member board that oversees downtown development. The Manistee Downtown Development Authority meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 8:30 am at the West Shore Community College downtown campus building located at 400 River Street. 

For PA 57, two informal City Council Bi-Annual Reporting meetings will also take place. These typically include a presentation of goals, projects, and direction of the authority.  These are typically held at the first city council meeting in March and September each year.

All DDA Meetings are open to the public.
