EDC Returns To Benton Harbor

Investors are interested in developing within the City of Benton Harbor, but a small hurdle stands in their way, according to City Manager Darwin Watson.



That's why the City Commission this week reestablished the Economic Development Corporation so it can transfer three properties it owns back to the city for development. The EDC was created 26-years ago, but hasn't met for over a decade. A board has been established and will meet soon, though no date has been set. The properties are a parking lot on Territorial Road, between The Ideal Place and The Library in the Arts District, and two vacant lots in residential areas along Broadway and Columbus Avenues.
