Litchfield Park is taking the first steps to create its City Center mixed-use project that would overhaul downtown into a commercial destination.

“The city does not have a property tax. Our city works off of retail sales tax that we get from any retail-type projects,” said City Manager Bill Stephens. “And so, our objective is to increase the revenue flow from a retail sales tax base in order to help the city to continue to maintain the lifestyle and quality of life that folks here in Litchfield Park currently live and have grown accustomed to live by.”

The city has earmarked $3 million for City Center-related construction projects in the tentative budget for fiscal year 2020, which begins July 1 and ends June 30, 2020. City Council also directed staff to begin general plan and zoning amendments to create a City Center district, directed staff to begin an ordinance adopting design guidelines for City Center and directed the city engineer to examine what infrastructure exists under the site.
