Municipal Restoration Zone
The City of Fresno award winning Municipal Restoration Zone
(MRZ) program was first presented by Mayor Alan Autry in January 2006, as a way to stimulate business growth in the underutilized areas of Fresno. On October 31, 2006, the City Council unanimously adopted a resolution establishing the MRZ.

at the City of Fresno Downtown and Community Revitalization Division or call (559) 621-8426.
The MRZ allows new or qualified expanding businesses within the zone boundaries to obtain refunds of business license fees, reductions of building permit fees, and refunds of sales and/or property taxes, in addition to the intitiatives already in place as part of the Federal Empowerment Zone and State Enterprise Zone. These incentives are designed to help motivate business development and expansion, and job creation in the City's urban core.
The Municipal Restoration Zone boundaries contain all properties with the City Limits south of McKinley Avenue and west of Peach Avenue.MRZ Boundary Map
