Eight Mile Woodward Corridor
Improvement Authority

What does the EMWCIA do?

The Eight Mile Woodward Corridor Improvement Authority (EMWCIA) was established pursuant to Michigan Public Act 280 of 2005, as amended, which has been recodified into Michigan Public Act 57 of 2018, and undertook the redevelopment of the approximately 35 acres of the southeast corner of the Woodward/8 Mile site into the Gateway Marketplace. (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.

The EMWCIA is governed by its Board of Directors, whose members are appointed by the mayor subject to the consent of City Council.
