Lawrence city commissioners on Tuesday agreed to have the Public Incentives Review Committee examine a proposal by a local architecture firm to relocate its headquarters to downtown.
Lawrence-based Treanor Architects wants to renovate and expand a vacant building at 1040 Vt. to serve as its headquarters. But the company is seeking property tax rebates through the Neighborhood Revitalization Act.
Commissioners agreed to ask the Public Incentives Review Committee to provide a recommendation on whether the project with the incentives would produce a positive return for the community.
The committee will meet at 4 p.m. March 29 at City Hall. City commissioners are scheduled to hold a public hearing on the project April 5.
