The project relates to the City’s strategic plan to ensure a diverse City tax base, invest in  community places to ensure revitalization and increase quality of life, and leverage partnerships for job creation and retention. 

The City Council was asked to approve up to $317,000 in economic development incentive grants that will be paid out in over five years for the project. The Council voted to approve the incentive package. 

The next regular City Council meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 27 at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall.
