The Economic Development Commission (EDComm) meets at 6:30 in City Council Chambers. A board member from the Chamber of Commerce will be there to give a status report on the Chamber’s plans and finances. GoFarm will request an economic incentive for a proposed new greenhouse that will grow food. A property owner in the Goosetown neighborhood has offered the use of his property. The requested incentive would be to have the City provide a water tap on the property, which would be worth a minimum of $29,000. Staff will suggest a couple of alternatives. Staff will also provide an update on several on-going projects, such as this year’s agreement with Traxion and the proposed Local Business Awareness program.
