  1. The property’s current zoning, zoning of surrounding properties and the property’s potential for medium- and/or high-density development;
  2. The property’s designation in the 2017 Comprehensive Plan including designation as an area of Change/Consistency, location in a Center/Corridor, location on a Main Street Corridor, or other;
  3. The property’s potential for reinvestment given site location;
  4. Whether the property itself meets the criteria for MRA inclusion -OR- Whether reinvestment in the property would catalyze investment in the MRA area broadly;
