What is the time frame for seeing change?
Deterioration of many of the neighborhoods within the district took place over the course of many years. As a result, reversing that process will take a long-term and sustained effort. In the beginning stages of the CRA district, the tax increment is relatively small and the majority of the activities will be related to planning, strategy and goal-setting. As the plan is developed and the increment grows, the opportunities for larger, more visible projects will emerge. Keep in mind that the Downtown CRA district was created in 2009.
