NCR proposes Neighborhood Relief Fund

The Neighborhood and Community Relations Department is recommending that City Council approve the creation of a Neighborhood Relief Fund, and the use of up to $200,000 of Consolidated Redevelopment Tax Increment Financing District (Consolidated TIF District) funds for the Neighborhood Relief Fund.
