City to Host Orientation for Construction Mitigation Program
May 14, 2019
TUSCALOOSA, AL - The City of Tuscaloosa will host an orientation for the new Construction Mitigation Program from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 17 at City Hall in the Daugherty Conference Room. This meeting will allow local business owners who have been impacted by road construction to speak with city officials and learn how to apply for mitigation assistance.
At the initial meeting, business owners will also have access to pre-submittal application reviews and the opportunity to discuss questions related to the program
The City is working together with ALDOT and the federal government to minimize any adverse financial and non-financial effects on the businesses impacted by public infrastructure projects that are within city limits, but not managed by the City.
The Construction Mitigation Program (CMP) is designed to provide and offer businesses pre-construction informational services regarding projects that last one year or more and the ability to monitor and adapt city services during construction.
The desired outcome of the CMP is to limit any negative economic impacts of public infrastructure projects on businesses; however, the CMP is not intended to recoup total lost business income.
The City of Tuscaloosa is committed to this program and will work through various construction mitigation activities to maintain a healthy climate for businesses as well as a vibrant tax base.
Any questions regarding the City of Tuscaloosa’s Construction Mitigation Program prior to the initial meeting on Friday, May 17 can contact Eric Thompson at email@example.com or Tuscaloosa 311 at 205-248-5311.
