A bill, HB 4422, to allow for transit oriented development activities in business improvement zones received a hearing in the House Commerce and Trade committee this week. We thank Rep. Andy Schor for introducing this legislation! Transit is vital to attracting and retaining talented individuals in our communities and having this financing option as a tool will be important in seeing economic development happen around those transit stops.
The League is fully supportive of this legislation.
