Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke is set to deliver his “State of the City” address on Tuesday.
Winnecke will make the presentation before the Rotary Club at noon.
He is expected to announce that the city will use some of Tropicana’s rent payments to fund the land-banking proposal to eliminate blight.
Officials say other uses are expected to be announced for the $17.5 million in up-front rent payment.
The event will be held in the Walnut Room of the Tropicana Evansville Executive Conference Center.
