City establishes Bronzeville development incentive zone
The Common Council on Tuesday, November 22 adopted file #220772 – an ordinance to establish a development incentive zone known as the Bronzeville Cultural and Entertainment District on land located generally on the north and south sides of W. North Ave., at and west of N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. and east of Interstate 43, in the 6th Aldermanic District. The file was sponsored by area Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs.
“Bronzeville has received much attention and notoriety within the last year, and the creation of this development incentive zone ensures we can continue this positive momentum as we make Bronzeville one of the best cultural and entertainment destinations around,” said Alderwoman Coggs. “I want to thank the staff who have spent time on this project, as well as all of the residents and area stakeholders who have provided their input along the way.”
