In April 2012 the Mayor and Council passed a resolution to adopt the Downtown Gateway Redevelopment Area (Resolution #21875) and “central business district” (Resolution #21874). The Redevelopment Area will establish mechanisms to create significant economic development activity as a catalyst for other development with a focus on underutilized and vacant property. Specifically, the redevelopment area allows the City to activate the Government Property Lease Excise Tax (GPLET) program.

Planning Process and Public Participation
The City of Tucson Department of Housing and Community Development is developing a Redevelopment Area Plan with input from residents and stakeholders who are living, working, shopping, investing and doing business in the Redevelopment Area. Information that is posted on this web site, listed as "Needs" and "Assets" has been gathered from public discussions, and will be considered in preparation of the final document.
The next public meeting is scheduled as follows:
Date: November 19, 2013
Time: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Location: Monterey Court, 505 West Miracle Mile
Purpose of the Plan
This Plan is intended to guide social, economic, and structural improvements in the City of Tucson Redevelopment Planning Area/Central Business District. The Plan focuses on general economic development goals and policies adopted by the Mayor and Council, with a specific emphasis on vacant land development in the form of business incentives and assistance.
Based on distinctive land use pattern, the Redevelopment Planning Area/Central Business District has been divided into four sub areas:
The Origins Gateway
The Downtown Central Business District
The Southeast Gateway
The Northern Gateway
Information for each sub area will be posted during the planning process.
