Some city land acquired for right of way will have to be rededicated to the state, DDA director and Woodstock Director of Economic Development Billy Peppers said, and the city can't have liens on property it gives to the state.
...
Peppers said commercial areas within the new DDA boundaries could benefit from financing, incentives and tax credits the DDA has available to it. He said the lines have not been changed since they were drawn when the DDA was organized in 2001.
"The city's changed a lot since then," he said.
Peppers said while the DDA can assist businesses in its area, the move would not have any effect on homeowners included in the boundary.
"The normal property owner wouldn't even know they are in the downtown district," he said.
