The City Council, determining that it is necessary in the best interest of the public to halt property value deterioration and increase property tax valuation where possible in its business districts, to eliminate the causes of deterioration and to promote economic growth, hereby declares its intention to and hereby does create and provide for the operation of the City of Oak Park Corridor Improvement Authority, pursuant to Act No.280, 2005, MCL 125.2871 et seq. as amended, of the State of Michigan.
In the city adopted Resolution No. CM-09-356-15 approving the creation of the Corridor Improvement Authority (“CIA”), the board was established and the TIF and Development Plans were created. The plans set forth guidelines for which the city will be able to undergo extensive streetscape projects consisting of a road diet, pocket parks, and bike lanes along the Nine Mile Corridor, Façade Grant Funding, Parking Lot creation/Improvements, Marketing, Events, Landscaping, and more. The cost of these projects will be financed through tax increment financing and grant funding and therefore requires a descriptive plan of attack.
