The City’s Neighborhood Empowerment Zone (NEZ) program designates certain central city areas as eligible for redevelopment incentives, including permit and impact fee waivers. (Please note that properties within the TIF district are not eligible for NEZ tax abatements.)
The majority of the Near Southside is within designated NEZs. The Magnolia Village NEZ includes much of the district west of I-35W, and the Evans & Rosedale Village NEZ includes the area to the east.
More information on NEZ incentives and application process is available through the City’s website.
