DDA Plan and Tax Increment Financing Plan Amendment
To help promote future development in the Village shopping district and to provide a mechanism to fund public improvements that will support the vitality of the City’s central business district, the City Council created and established the Grosse Pointe Downtown Development Authority in July 2008.
The Downtown Development Authority Board Members are Andrew Martin, Chair, Daniel Aitken, James Bellanca, Amy Hartmann Taylor, Vice-Chair, Michael Kramer, Dan Lemanske, Mr. June Lee, David Katz and Council Representatives Mayor Dale Scrace and Council Member Christopher Walsh.
The DDA Board met and created a Development Plan and Tax Increment Financing Plan which outlines the goals and projects which would be eligible for DDA expenditures in the DDA district. The DDA approved its plan on November 3, 2008 and submitted it to the City Council. The City Council approved the DDA Development Plan and Tax Increment Financing Plan and Ordinance on December 15, 2008. The DDA Board recently approved an amendment to the DDA Plan on December 3, 2012 which the City Council, after public hearing, approved the amendment on January 28, 2013.
