Commerce Mayor Wyman Williams says the Toole Design Group team led by Ian Lockwood returns this week for more sessions on the development of a revitalization plan for the city.  Members of the public may visit the Toole Design team from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.  Also, a public meeting takes place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall where the completed plan will be presented.  The mayor says the City Council is considering the use of tax-increment financing as a way of paying for the improvements over the course of time.
