Push To Draw Small Businesses To Downtown Salisbury Moves Ahead

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - At the August 19th Salisbury City Council meeting, council members further discussed creating an "EDU" incentive, in order to draw small businesses to downtown Salisbury.

When a new business starts up downtown, they typically have to pay at least $3,500 per EDU for water and sewage usage, but the proposed incentive would waive those costs. The surplus of EDU's come from the closed "Linens of the Week" laundry facility in the Church Street neighborhood in Salisbury. Because it is an ordinance, it will take two readings to pass council. If this happens at their next two meetings on August 26th and September 2nd, the process will begin shortly after. City council hopes by eliminating this fee, businesses will be more inclined to start up downtown.
