Covington Arts District
In January of 2005, the plans for the development of the Covington
Arts District where presented to the public and approved by the
Covington City Commission in May. It is a plan for economic rebirth,
community revitalization, and more importantly, a catalyst for
an increased presence of artists and all types of art in our city.
The City has devised a strategy for development of a district
that is distinctly unique to Covington. Three areas have been
designated in the Arts District and include the Covington Arts
and Technology Zone (CATZ), the Covington Artists Residential
District (CARD), and the Covington Cultural Heritage District
(CCHD). A set of incentives have been designed by the city to
meet the goals of each particular area. Many of these may be used
in conjunction with the great incentives package the city's Economic
Development and Housing Departments already have available. www.covingtonarts.com
