Targeted Area Development (TAD) Program
Targeted Area Development (TAD) is one of the economic development strategies of the City of Spokane’s Business & Development Services department. It is a location-based strategy that maximizes resources for effective implementation and growth.
TAD is a new and innovative approach to aligning infrastructure with economic opportunities to maximize capital investment. It promotes private investment, which helps to create and retain jobs. It also focuses the use of incentives to align with long-term community priorities.
- Identification as a Center or Corridor in the City’s Comprehensive Plan and/or as an industry cluster in the Regional Community Economic Development Strategy
- The potential for public sector focus to act as a catalyst for development
- Opportunity to leverage with infrastructure investments
Target Areas are ready to move forward with the planning, implementation, and redevelopment. Business & Development Services works with stakeholders and the community at large to assemble resources, facilitate vision development, and create an environment to help spur growth, attract business, and increase potential.
