The Eight Mile Woodward Corridor Improvement Authority (the “EMWCIA”) was established pursuant to Michigan Public Act 280 of 2005, as amended, and is dedicated to developing the approximately 35 acres of the southeast corner of the Woodward/8 Mile site. (Link to development and TIF plan). Funding for the EMWCIA Development and Tax Increment Financing Plan comes from an increase in property taxes as a result from the new investment at the site.
