The City is committed to the high quality, balanced growth and development of our community, to preserve the City's character & atmosphere and to revitalize and redevelop areas of the City. The City recognizes the importance of continued economic development to meet the needs of its residents, and its obligation to balance the demand for economic development with the judicious use of economic incentives, reserving the use of these incentives for projects that demonstrate significant public benefit. Accordingly, the City has established certain goals regarding the use of Funding Districts:


      A.    To promote, stimulate and develop the general and economic welfare
of the City.

B.    To provide and maintain an attractive community that creates a
positive public image and encourages individuals, families and
      businesses to locate and invest in the community.

C.    To encourage the use of public economic incentives in those locations
      and situations that provide the maximum public benefit.

D.   To limit the use of public economic incentives for the shortest
      duration while still providing for the desired level of public financial

It is the policy of the City that any decision regarding the use of public economic incentives will be made in accordance with the guidelines, criteria, and procedures set forth in the City’s Economic Development Incentive Policy (available in the drop-down documents to the right).
