Development, Incentives and Revitalization

The Department of Community Enhancement connects the county and our community partners to achieve effective revitalization. Older communities and commercial areas face normal challenges that come with age. These areas need continued maintenance and reinvestment. Revitalization helps maintain the vitality and high quality of life of our older communities countywide.
