The City of Algoma wants to plan future business and economic growth by establishing a redevelopment authority. The city has previously handled economic development on an individual project basis. Algoma City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says a redevelopment authority will help target select areas of the city for planned growth.
Every community in the state has the ability to create and operate a redevelopment authority. This would be Algoma’s first step in establishing such an agency.
