The Tallassee Community Development Corporation is an Alabama non-profit corporation. It has received approval from the IRS as a public charity. Its goals generally are to build the community and to improve the quality of life for Tallassee. Its interests extend beyond the City limits to the entire 12,000-member community. It works with other public-interest entities throughout the community in projects for community development. It works closely with the Chamber of Commerce, the Tallassee Redevelopment Authority, and the City's Planning Commission in planning and promoting the community. It has been assigned the task of working with the Riverwalk Extension project and the revitalization plans for the business districts. An innovative project sponsored by the Community Development Corporation is the Tailgate Partnering Project in which it works with other non-profit organizations and entities as fund-raisers, especially during the fall football season, selling Boston butts, brisket, ribs, camp stew, and sandwiches in the downtown business district on Saturdays.
