Ward 3 for All – FY25 Budget: Economic Opportunity

Expand Economic Opportunity

Our business districts and brick-and-mortar small businesses continue to struggle with changing economic conditions and need support to remain vibrant. District residents need diverse pathways to employment and advancement. The budget the Council passed balanced an emphasis on Downtown revitalization with investments in the city’s broader small business ecosystem, including lowering the tax burden on some small businesses, simplifying business licensing, reducing the threshold to receive a Clean Hands, and increasing funding for Main Street programs that support small businesses in all eight wards.
