Commerce Considering 'Neighborhood Empowerment Zones'


Commerce Mayor Wyman Williams says the city council is considering the creation of "neighborhood empowerment zones" on the east side of the city that would encourage the renovation of homes and new home construction.  This is in addition to the "opportunity zone" created by the 2017 federal tax law that provides tax incentives for business development in Commerce and many other rural communities.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
