Redevelopment Areas

Waterfront Redevelopment Area (Waterfront Redevelopment Plan)
Perhaps the most popular part of the City's redevelopment efforts due to the amount of media attention it receives and its size (approximately 56 acres) the Waterfront Redevelopment Area is envisioned to contain 3,164 residential units and nearly 450,000 square feet of commercial space. Not only will new residential buildings (some containing commercial uses as well) be constructed, but an almost complete "rebuild" of the utility infrastructure and public streetscape will be realized.

Scattered Site Redevelopment Area (Scattered Site Phase I Redevelopment Plan) (Scattered Site Phase IA Redevelopment Plan)
As the name implies, the City is actively seeking the redevelopment of deteriorated properties which are scattered throughout the City. The program is working. City administration has entered into negotiations with redevelopers for the first round of available deteriorated properties. The primary strategy for the scattered site program is to firmly encourage unresponsive property owners to fix up their properties, if the owner doesn't do it, then someone who will, will be found.
