Why are these projects good for the City? As a resident, what’s in it for me?

These projects are consistent with the community-designed Downtown Master Plan that guides smart investments and development. 

The advantages of these developments to the city are multi-faceted. 

Thee projects are:   

  • Place makers: high-quality projects built to be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike that activate and energize the downtown. 
  • Revenue generators: projects that will diversify the city’s tax base so that single-family residential properties will carry less of the city’s tax burden.    

The Town Green Market Development: 
  • Sets the tone for architectural quality in the downtown.  
  • Attracts the kinds of restaurants and retail that will activate the Town Green and the remainder of the downtown.

The Townhome Community: 
  • Activates the park with people and businesses day and night. 
  • Diversifies housing and office options available in the City. 
  • Adds to the customer base to support desired retail.  

The Boutique Hotel: 

  • Creates a built-in, captured customer base to support retail and drive spending in our business district. 
  • Provides multiple sources of revenue through property and hotel taxes.

The Public/Private Parking Deck:

  • Provides long-term parking solutions for the downtown. 
  • Is pivotal to enabling these public-private partnerships to move forward.
