Ferguson is Getting Down to Business
It’s an exciting time in Ferguson Citywalk! The district has benefited from increasing public and private investment, with several major developments in progress. A number of our historical buildings have been dramatically transformed – along with historically sensitive new construction – creating greater opportunities for retail development and improving the area’s general aesthetics. In short, it’s the perfect time to consider locating your business in this thriving community.
Ferguson Citywalk is home to dozens of entrepreneurs, and its success is directly linked to the health, creativity, and ingenuity of small businesses. Aiming to be a haven for “mom and pop” establishments, as well as a destination for arts, dining and entertainment, the district actively supports its members by hosting business enrichment workshops and providing other support services.
Designated as a TIF (tax increment financing) zone in 2002, Citywalk offers financial incentives for qualified improvement projects. Redevelopment agreements are negotiated between the city and the developer or business, and must be approved by the Ferguson City Council.
