Mayor Eddie Morán Advocates for CRIZ in Harrisburg,
Aiming to Boost Urban Revitalization.


Reading, PA:

The City of Reading is proud to announce that our Mayor, Eddie Morán, will be in the state capital, Harrisburg, over the next two days, advocating for the City Revitalization and Improvement Zone (CRIZ) Authority. The CRIZ program is a vital initiative aimed at stimulating economic growth in underutilized urban areas, providing numerous benefits for communities and local economies.

Mayor Eddie Morán shared his perspective on this important initiative. He said, "The CRIZ program is a game-changer for Reading and cities alike across the commonwealth. It offers a unique opportunity to revitalize our urban areas, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for our residents. By working together and engaging our legislators, we can bring about positive change that will benefit our entire community.”

The CRIZ program offers incentives for businesses to invest in the community, fostering job creation, increasing property values, and contributing to a stronger local economy. Moreover, it can include provisions for affordable housing, parks and green spaces, or cultural amenities, thereby enhancing the overall quality of life for residents in the area.

The Mayor's visit to Harrisburg and his advocacy for CRIZ Zone signify the city's unwavering commitment to fostering growth, empowering its residents, and creating a thriving urban landscape.
