Kenneth Luttinger, Lafe Metz and Tyler Dischinger recently co-authored an article titled, “How PA is Aiding Development in 3rd-Class Cities.” The article, published by Law360, discusses the City Revitalization and Improvement Zones Act (CRIZ), created to provide financing for redevelopment projects in cities of the third class in the commonwealth, such as Altoona, Bethlehem, Chester, Erie Lancaster, Reading, Wilkes-Barre and York.

The CRIZ act passed in Pennsylvania on July 9, 2013, allowing certain state and local tax revenues to fund development projects and was modeled after legislation that was recently passed in order to provide substantial redevelopment to Allentown, they wrote.
