Many cities utilized the tax increment financing authority bestowed by the statewide redevelopment program to finance infrastructure. Its elimination has limited infrastructure financing options and may undermine the role of cities in creating community revitalization. Discuss proactive steps to restore a city’s ability to make strategic infrastructure investments and promote local economic development. Review new financing tools, how those efforts relate to State legislation, and what other cities can do to be better positioned for a future without the traditional tool of redevelopment.
