Neighborhood Revitalization Program

Program Objective

The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) is a partnership between the City of Fort Scott, and Bourbon County. The NRP is intended to promote revitalization and development by focusing rehabilitation, conservation, and redevelopment within the NRP area by offering property tax rebates to owners who complete certain improvements or renovations of property. However, there must be a minimum investment of $5,000 on residential properties and $10,000 on commercial/industrial properties to receive a tax rebate incentive.
