The City of Tucson Central Business District (CBD), first adopted in 2012, was renewed by the Mayor and Council in September 2020 for an additional 10 years. The CBD designation enables the City to use the Government Property Lease Excise Tax (GPLET) as an incentive to encourage quality redevelopment downtown. This Spring, the Mayor and Council will determine the future of the CBD and how best to use GPLET as a tool to accomplish community goals. Register below.
The City’s earnest intention is to engage the community, with its rich and diverse perspectives, in the process. To that end, the Mayor and Council and the Office of Economic Initiatives will host a series of seven virtual meetings to engage the community in co-creating a shared vision for the future of the CBD. These 90 minute meetings will inform the Mayor and Council with regard to modification of CBD boundaries and GPLET requirements.
