About Us

On April 30, 2009, Alabama Governor Bob Riley signed into law Act #2009-337 authorizing, “… the incorporation of development authorities for the purpose of developing real and personal property of closed military installations in Alabama…” This legislation paved the way for the establishment of a new Local Reuse Authority at McClellan.

On March 3, 2010, the McClellan Development Authority was officially certified as a non-profit public corporation charged with the future economic development of the former US Army Fort. The MDA Board of Directors consists of five members appointed by the Calhoun County Commission, five members appointed by the Anniston City Council and one member appointed by the Governor of Alabama. Board meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of January, April, July, and September at 9:00 AM in the MDA board room.
