Warner Robins discusses new plan for redevelopment


Warner Robins City Council discussed development, with the goal of creating a gateway to a thriving city.

One of the ways they hope to do that is by making a tax allocation district, or "TAD."

That means if a developer wants to bring business into the district, all of the money that comes as a result of increased property value will stay in the district and pay for various projects.

It would run along Watson Boulevard from the Base to Commercial Circle and extend north to Young Avenue and south to Robins Drive.

The project is meant to give incentive for developers to bring their business to the area.

They expect the development will increase the property values, generating more tax money and putting more revenue in the city's coffers to pay for the future projects.
