Preservation & Development Authority

Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation & Development Authority (SCIDPDA)
Founded in 1975 as a City-chartered community development agency, the Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation and Development Authority (SCIDPDA) has played an important role in revitalizing the Seattle Chinatown International District. Its mission is to preserve, promote, and develop the Seattle Chinatown International District as a vibrant community and unique ethnic neighborhood.

SCIDPDA fosters neighborhood renewal by bringing new projects to the neighborhood that increase the economic viability and quality of life within the Chinatown International District. SCIDPDA encourages new projects that fit the existing historical and cultural characteristics of the multiethnic neighborhood.

SCIDPDA works collaboratively with a variety of partners to provide solutions to neighborhood-wide issues. Together, the partners work to improve public safety, affordable housing, transportation, marketing, business development, and parking in the community.

Pike Place Market Preservation & Development Authority (PDA)
Pike Place Market PDA is a nonprofit, public corporation chartered by the City of Seattle in 1973 to manage 80% of the properties in the nine-acre Market Historical District. The PDA is required to preserve, rehabilitate and protect the Markets buildings; increase opportunities for farm and food retailing in the Market; incubate and support small and marginal businesses; and provide services for low-income people. Though Pike Place Market is a public market, the PDA does not receive any public money to own and operate the Market. Revenues are derived from the Market's tenants through rent, utilities, and other property management activities. PDA activities are governed by an all-volunteer, 12-member PDA Council: four are appointed by the Mayor of Seattle, four by the Market Constituency, and four by the Council itself.
