City Council sweetens downtown redevelopment incentive

City Council voted today to sweeten a downtown redevelopment incentive program to help attract new commercial investment and spur revitalization in the area. Council members approved a recommendation from the Heart of Our City Committee to broaden the scope of eligibility and lower the investment threshold required to qualify for the Targeted Redevelopment Incentive Program (TRIP), which offers a range of municipal tax cancellations for new downtown construction or improvements to existing downtown buildings.
