The City designated 16 of its most productive manufacturing zones as Industrial Business Zones (IBZs) and several others as Industrial Ombudsmen Areas.
The City is committed to preserving these areas for industrial use. It helps industrial and manufacturing firms in these areas access free, expert business assistance. Services include help accessing City and State incentive programs, relocating or expanding, accessing financing, business to business networking and navigating government regulations. Businesses relocating to or within these districts may be eligible for the IBZ Relocation Tax Credit.
