City of Adrian Opportunity Zone Development (2019)
Co-Learning Plan - 2019
Author: Mary ZumBrunnen and Chris Miller, City of Adrian
This Co-Learning proposal focuses on developing best practices for a small Opportunity Zone within the City of Adrian concentrating on fund development and attraction. Within an Opportunity Zone, investors may receive capital gains relief in low-income census tracts of distressed communities. As such, historical and current barriers to investment must be overcome with best practices unique to their region identified. Working with a host of national, state, and local partners, the City will create and disseminate a resource toolkit for small cities identified for this type of social investment.
