The Canton Downtown Development Authority has instituted a wayfinding system with the use of color-coded leaf banners on the streetlight poles located in the DDA District (better known as Canton's Ford Road). The color blocks also run north and south off Ford Road to assist in locating businesses.

There are over 300 businesses in the Canton DDA District along Ford Road including a wide range of retail establishments, department stores, health and other professional services, financial institutions, auto supplies and services, a variety of restaurants, sports and entertainment venues, motels, and apartment and condominium complexes.
