Trips to work, shopping, and schools can be made by walking or transit.
But our historic areas have also “hollowed out”. Most
Downtowns have little retail, and a great deal of near
in housing has been demolished or is vacant.
The City will do the following to revitalize older areas:
Help developers create new green housing & businesses
TIF and Enterprise Zone incentives will be used
Mixed use development will be emphasized
Bike trails & racks will be provided
Transit will be improved
Solar and Wind energy will be incented
Renewable energy sources will be sought
Build the Block will be a "Green"Showcase, with Leed Certified buildings and green technology.
