  2. Encourage redevelopment and private sector investment in existing building stock within tSDG Counties  to support employment, reduce the number of vacant commercial, institutional and industrial buildings, and increase the assessment base.
  3. Increase the amount of permanent roofed accommodations within SDG Counties to specifically accommodate for an increase in tourism establishments that cater to short-term accommodations.
