Infill Development Program

The purpose of the Infill Development Program is to provide a process for developers to partner with the City to provide opportunities for new development and redevelopment on vacant, bypassed and underutilized land owned by the City where infrastructure already exists, that is competitive with conventional development and/or redevelopment. When specific properties are identified for the program, the City will issue a Request For Proposals (RFP) for redevelopment of those sites. The link to the Infill Development Program Ordinance can be found here.
