Downtown Development Strategies

Historic Downtown Mansfield has experience a resurgence over the past decade in part due to significant public investment in infrastructure. In 2013, the City completed the Historic Downtown Mansfield Implementation Plan that resulted in the establishment of a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) for the downtown area. Since the TIRZ was established, funds have been used to assist with part of the development of the Main Street Lofts, among other improvements.

In order to continue the momentum in downtown, the City contracted with Halff & Associates in 2019 to develop specific downtown development strategies with the objective of attracting additional private investment in downtown.
