The Kalispell Urban Renewal Agency is asking city council to put their money where their mouth is.
City council has already shown support for plans to revamp downtown Kalispell. Part of that core area plan is moving the train tracks out from of Main Street to east of Whitefish Stage Road.
The Urban Renewal Agency voted Thursday morning to formally ask city council to use millions of tax dollars for this project.
That's only going to cover a fraction of the costs, though.
They're hoping to get more money from a federal grant that's due in less than two weeks.
City officials say this redevelopment could really open up the city center.
"Route four all the way back to Smith's, there's a chunk of properties in there that this would really open up and make viable," said Thomas Jentz, the Kalispell planning director.
They will talk to city council about diverting some tax dollars Monday.
