Governor Markell Presents 'Downtown Development Districts'

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - Governor Jack Markell made stops throughout the first state on Wednesday to explain his plan for "Downtown Development Districts."

The $7 million proposal would allow one to three Delaware cities to receive a number of development incentives and other benefits in housing and transportation to help them revitalize.

Governor Markell says the legislation and budget still have to pass before cities can apply, but he wanted to get the word out about the potential for downtown development.

"We think that's really important and we think that's important in different parts of our state," says Governor Markell. "We have a lot of great downtown areas, we'd love to see them even more successful than they are today."

Governor Markell stopped in Wilmington, Dover, and Bridgeville on Wednesday to explain the proposal. He says the application process for cities is still several months away.
