Retail + Your Community
– Creating Assets for Communities:
Retail and Commercial properties
generate tax revenue, essential for
funding municipal programs.
– Reducing property Taxes: Increasing commercial tax base
is one way to help communities hold down property taxes.
– Local Economic Growth: Development projects can be
thoughtfully planned to help invigorate the local economy.
They can be designed to support existing businesses and
attract new ones.
Retail + Your Community
– Increasing Property Values: Creating amenities can make
a community more appealing to live, work, play and shop.
– Accessibility to Goods and Services: A wide selection,
close to home – the kinds of goods and services retail
businesses offer – will draw homeowners to a community.
– Jobs: Retail provides job
opportunities for people of all skill
levels. It helps people increase work
activity, supplement income and
develop new job skills.
