At 17 acres, the district includes many vacant and city-owned properties that new increment from the TIF is intended to help redevelop. Its main objective is to foster an improved and affordable residential environment through site assembly assistance for new development projects and the elimination of blight and other impediments to private investment. The TIF was also created to insure that new housing developments are appropriate for area income levels and reflective of existing architectural styles.
