The District is currently working on a business strategy and redevelopment plan. Rezoning of the business areas, using the assistance of a paid consultant has been a success. The Board of Aldermen has rezoned 80 Chapel West properties to BD-1 downtown zoning. This gives property owners far greater rights to build at greater density and allows additional properties to convert to business use or to mix business and residential uses in the same building. Already developers have been contacting property owners with an interest to expand development on empty sites. In the near future actions furthering development and enhancements to the District’s tax base will be submitted to the City for approval. The District Board will actively begin the next phase of accomplishing the objectives of the plan. Special meetings for specific projects may be called.
