The City is moving forward with several projects in 2018-19 and we want to be sure that you know what is going on. That’s why we’ve developed the Ferndale Forward brand. Whenever you see the Ferndale Forward logo, you know it is official communication from the Ferndale DDA.

While the DDA is experiencing residential growth (over 200 units being built in 2018-19) as well as the addition of some office and retail space, The dot is considered to be the most transformational development of them all! Downtown Ferndale will not only have more retail space, residential units, and office space, and an event space in one spot, but we will also triple the number of parking spaces on the W. Troy Street parking lot.

Official Communication from the City or DDA regarding the dot will always come with the official logo.
