LCDC video: extended version

Watch and understand
How urban renewal works video

We've seen the successes. The Kroc Center. Riverstone development. Higher Education Campus. New downtown library.

The city’s urban renewal agency, the Lake City Development Corporation (LCDC), played an integral role in all of these projects. But where did the money come from to help support these progressive community endeavors?

Take a few minutes and we'll help you understand.

As part of its ongoing commitment to public transparency and open communications, the Lake City Development Corporation has produced a brief educational video that is now available. The video includes comments from community citizens, including local business owners, and LCDC Chairman Denny Davis. It also details how urban renewal works through a process called tax increment financing.

This video is not a sales tool. Instead, it is the LCDC's effort to clear up misunderstandings about the agency's work, shed some light on our mission and respond to frequently asked questions about urban renewal funding with easy-to-understand factual data, graphics and comments. There are two versions. A brief 3-minute video and a more comprehensive 7-minute video. Enjoy.
