Community Reinvestment Areas (CRAs)
A Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) is an economic incentive tool that the City of Zanesville has deployed in six (6) neighborhoods across the community. This tool allows for property owners to request a tax exemption on improvements made to properties located within the district. While it is designed primarily for residential rehabilitation, it does allow for negotiated abatements on commercial properties. CRA abatements are handled through the Community Development Department of the City of Zanesville.
