The Ada Township Board has named Dawn Marie Coe as the newest member of their Downtown Development Authority.

The board approved Township Supervisor George Haga's request to appoint Coe during a meeting on Monday, Jan. 8.

Coe is the founder and chief designer at DMC Design, which moved into Ada's village area in October 2017 as part of the Envision Ada project, and is also a resident of the township.

"I know there were many other great candidates so being chosen is truly an honor," Coe said. "This is where I live; this is where my kids go to school; this is where I own a building and a business, and being connected and helping grow the community is super important to me."

Her application was one of seven reviewed for the open position. According to Haga's written request, three of the applications were already on file and the other four were submitted as a result of the vacancy.

Coe's appointment comes after the resignation of Bob Kullgren, longtime DDA chairperson.

Longtime Ada DDA chairperson resigns after trustees' comments on DDA move

Kullgren resigned via email, which he sent to Haga on Oct. 10 and questioned whether the Township Board had confidence in the DDA.

His questioning apparently referred to comments made about the DDA at a Township Board meeting prior to his resignation.

Terry Bowersox, DDA vice-chair, is currently acting chair. The DDA will elect a new chair in April.
