With its army of enthusiastic volunteers, Downtown Ferndale has been able to undergo incredible change. In fact, most everything that happens in the district happens because volunteers have raised their hand to make the town they love even better. Last year alone, the Ferndale DDA tracked more than 5,000 hours donated by fans and friends of the district.

It’s easy to get involved. Just call the DDA at 248-546-1632 or fill out the appropriate Volunteer Application and send it in. Tell us what you’d like to do and we’ll help you help us. You can serve on the board, participate on a committee or join us at an event.

As managers of the physical infrastructure of Downtown Ferndale, the Ferndale DDA operates an ongoing and year round streetscape improvement program which includes the installation of hanging flower baskets (the best in the region!), park benches, recycling bins, new trees and more. Each of these items represents an opportunity for fans of Downtown Ferndale to get their name on the street. Check back soon for a complete package on how you can show your love for your hometown.
