Strategic urban renewal projects can be an incredible catalyst for private investment. In 1995 Downtown Bozeman, Montana developed a comprehensive urban renewal plan that included the creation of a Tax Increment Finance District and the future construction of a parking garage. Almost 15 years later the 435-space Bridger Park Garage was opened and subsequently sparked $55 million of private development within a one block radius.
This webinar will feature Chris Naumann, Executive Director of the Downtown Bozeman Partnership. He will share his experience with Bozeman’s downtown Tax Increment Finance district, from the original planning phases all the way through operation, highlighting the use of this tool for urban renewal, downtown revitalization, and economic development. Join us!
Eligible for 1 AICP CM credit.
