Update offered on Downtown Development Authority progress

Vice-Chair of the Harbor Springs Downtown Development Authority, Kathie Breighner, shared the following update on what the DDA is currently has on its docket:

--The design committee is working on two plans for the waterfront, one with the harbormaster near the Pier and the other near where it is now, only closer to Bay Street (to allow for vehicle access from Bay but still having a green space in front of the building).

-- The second annual retail spaces open house will take place on February 15, 12-3pm, meeting at Coolhouse Labs on Main Street. There are currently nine retail/restaurant spaces in downtown for sale, with another four available for rent.

-- We are proceeding with steps to establish a base for a Tax Increment Financing (TIF), as well as looking at an assessment within the Central Business District similar to those in our neighboring communities. We have accomplished a great deal with just volunteers, but an assessment would let us hire someone to focus on the downtown as well as apply for grants and special project funds.
