City of Huntington Redevelopment Commission

The City of Huntington Redevelopment Commission (RDC) is a five (5) member body with one ex-officio advisor that operates under the authority of IC 36-7-4-14.  The primary goal of the Redevelopment Commission is to provide increased economic opportunity by utilizing public resources to leverage increased private investment in order to increase property values, create and preserve jobs and improve quality of life.

 

The Redevelopment Commission administers and oversees two Tax Increment Financing (TIF) districts.  Those TIF Districts include the 2008 Consolidated Economic Development Area and the Cinergy MetroNET Economic Development Area. 

  

Under State Law, the Redevelopment Commission is charged with the following duties:
  • Investigate, study, and survey areas needing redevelopment within the corporate boundaries of the unit;
  • Investigate, study, determine, and, to the extent possible, combat the causes of areas needing redevelopment;
  • Promote the use of land in the manner that best serves the interests of the unit and its inhabitants;
  • Cooperate with the departments and agencies of the City and other governmental entities and with public instrumentalities and public corporate bodies created by state law;
  • Make findings and reports on their activities and keep those reports open to inspection by the public at the offices of the department;
  • Select and acquire the areas needing redevelopment to be redeveloped; and
  • Replan and dispose of the areas needing redevelopment in the manner that best serves the social and economic interests of the unit and its inhabitants.

 

Members serve one-year terms and the non-voting advisor serves a two-year term.  Membership of the Commission is as follows:
  • Three citizen members who must reside in the City are appointed by the Mayor.
