What is the benefit of being in a redevelopment project area?
The redevelopment process is one of the most effective public ways to foster private investment in areas of the community plagued by physical, environmental, or economic conditions. Through the redevelopment process, a redevelopment project area can receive focused attention and financial investment to reverse deteriorating trends, create jobs, revitalize the business climate, rehabilitate, and add to the housing stock, which would not otherwise occur. The tax increment revenue generated in the project area can only be used to make improvements within that specific project area; they cannot be used elsewhere in the City.
