Macon Council Postpones Expansion to Redevelopment Plan | News
Macon city council decided to hold off on a decision to expand a tax allocation district near downtown.
City administration proposed adding on to the district that spans part of downtown along Second Street to include areas near Little Richard Penniman Boulevard.
That would cost Macon $35,000 in SPLOST funds to draw up the paperwork and designs, but if a property owner in that area boosts their property value, the added taxes they pay will go toward new developments throughout the district.
Council members say they want more information before spending that money, especially because administrators say the original district has not stirred any additional revenue yet.
A few council members also asked about expanding the new district even further to include both sides of Moore Street and up to Pio Nono Avenue.
Administrators will redraw the plan and and present the final one to council members at the end of the month.
