It really is a shame that the RDA here has the support but not the money to build truly spectacular things downtown (the opposite is true in Vegas, see Culinary Union vs everyone and their mother).

What do you think about Tax Increment Financing for Reno? The City of Las Vegas has something like that, and it has worked more or less.


I don't know how I feel about TIF. I'm not opposed to it, I guess. I'm not really in favor of it though because as I see it the problem isn't really one of a lack of public money. It's more a lack of private money and so something - and it's not lack of interest in either case, I think - is causing friction for business. I think redevelopment as it's being practiced in Nevada today is kind of a phony premise.
