Others take over design and management. Some cities have a strong base of philanthropic organizations.
City Park would also mirror the trend in other cities where postindustrial sites are turned into parks and green space. The city redirects real estate taxes from residential and commercial developments in the project zone, creating a self-sustaining revenue stream that is far less dependent on concessions and permits for special events than signature parks in other major cities. Its redevelopment is expected to be a billion-dollar, decade-long project.
