Partnering with other community organizations, The District provides seminars for education, training and tools for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
The District and the City of Quincy, Illinois, Government will host a seminar on the Downtown Residential Redevelopment Program (DRRP) on Wednesday May 23 at 5:30pm.
The City of Quincy is offering Tax Increment Finance (TIF) funding to assist redevelopment proposals for upper story residential renovation projects that develop market rate rental housing units.
Buildings located within the City TIF districts will be eligible for:
$25,000 in per unit of TIF funding,
Sales tax exemption on building materials,
Reduction of 50% of building permit fees.
The City of Quincy and The District realize the most significant challenges to further development of the downtown are the shortage of market rate apartments. The District has 2nd and 3rd floor vacant and underutilized spaces in buildings that are available for redevelopment.
The City is requesting building owners to submit proposals for upper-story residential redevelopment projects that will increase market-rate housing opportunities in downtown Quincy.
The seminar will assist developers in any questions on the program and the application process.
