The impact of historic tax credits on the revitalization in downtown Birmingham and other historic areas of Alabama is unquestioned. Our recently restored state HTC, when combined with the Federal HTC has helped make millions of dollars of investment happen. It is an incentive that brings a clear return to our cities, state and nation.
The existence of the Federal HTC is under threat. Right now, the House Republican proposal for tax reform eliminates the historic tax credit. This is despite its success over its more than 35-year history of revitalizing small towns, creating jobs and increasing economic activity, all while returning more tax revenue to the Treasury than it costs. Losing the Federal HTC will make the state HTC that we all just worked to get back much less useful and cripple revitalization efforts in downtowns.
We need you to act now to contact your member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate and urge them to save the historic tax credit. Go to savingplaces.org for more information and to directly contact your members of Congress.
Dynamic pricing means that the price of a given spot can change in real-time in order to respond to demand.
The City of Birmingham has approved the applications for two micromobility vendors to operate shared bikes and scooters from vendors Gotcha and Veo in a wide service area that includes downtown and many neighborhoods that will begin in early 2021.
