Strategies for Infill Development in Monroe

Author

Metrics

Monroe Redevelopment Authority has identified 7 sites that would be ideal for redevelopment. These seven sights are primarily owned by the city and are currently
under used or entirely vacant lots. All 7 sites would be ideal for either residential
development, commercial development, or mixed use.
The primary goals of redevelopment in these areas are to increase the amount of
affordable housing for the community, and spur economic growth by encouraging new
business growth in the historic downtown of Monroe. The recommendations below will
provide a means by which the community can:
1. Increase the amount of affordable housing by incentivizing residential developers
to build in Monroe
2. Facilitate entrepreneurs and spur economic growth through new business
opportunities
3. Maintain the community culture and Historic sense of place that Monroe has
today
