How does new development happen?

New development occurs only when property owners choose. No property owner would be displaced or be required to relocate or redevelop their property; property owners will make decisions about their own properties. Market forces create opportunities for development and redevelopment. If people are not interested in building or rebuilding an apartment, a house or a business in the district, no change or development occurs. When an individual property owner decides it’s time for a change, any development proposals will be required to meet the code regulations in place at the time the proposal is made.
