Economic Opportunity Zones (EOZ)
In 2012 and 2013, Mayor Bach established an intiative to proposed solutions for revitalization and development of four (4) areas within the City:
- Southeast / Academy Boulevard
- North Nevada Avenue
- Airport Business Park
These focus areas are identified as Economic Opportunity Zones (EOZ) on the attached EOZ Overview Map. In 2013, the Mayor convened a Solutions Team to specifically recommend strategies for the Academy and North Nevada areas. Two task forces associated with this Team prepared and submitted reports to the Mayor and City Council in early 2014.
North Nevada / University of Colorado, Colorado Springs Economic Opportunity Zone Task Force findings and recommendations
Althought neither of these reports has been formally adopted, they provide a context for the strategic direction of the City for these two areas.
