  • “Based on the assumption that the Redevelopment Commission could receive $4,000,000 in increment over the life of the Tax Increment Financing area, the Commission could spend approximately $4,000,000 on infrastructure in or serving the area.” (pg 30)

  • Update on residential tax-increment financing
  • The Nashville Redevelopment Commission met on Aug. 3 and further discussed the progress of establishing residential tax-increment financing.
  • The process of establishing residential TIF is ongoing.
  • The first meeting for public comment was held in June. The then commission provided a 30-day notice of a meeting to review their economic development plan. Due to the meeting being canceled, the commission will submit another notice.
  • “Once we’ve done that, we’ll be in a place to create a declaratory resolution,” adviser Ed Curtin said.
  • “We’ll need to then go back to the school to hopefully gain their support and get a resolution from there to create TIF and complete our steps.”

  • Nashville Redevelopment Commission RDC) Meeting. April 6, 2021 5:30 pm.  Nashville’s Tax Increment Financing (TIF) plans were briefly reviewed.  Note:  “Indiana law now makes clear that TIF is intended to fund infrastructure to promote development that would not occur but for the added infrastructure financed by the TIF revenues. Evidence that the development would not happen but for the establishment of the TIF district must be presented before the TIF district is approved.”
  • Ed Curtin (Nashville consultant) confirmed that they have not received any formal requests for subsidies from any developers. In the past, Hard Truth Hills has not asked for a subsidy.
  • The “So What?”  A TIF directs the increases in property tax revenue from development to the Nashville RDC and not the county. The RDC borrows money to fund infrastructure with the assumption that the investment in infrastructure will generate sufficient funds to make payments on the loan (s).
  • The residential TIF was also discussed. By law, the Schools are required to be involved in the plans. In the larger counties such as Hamilton, plans for residential developments can lead to a need for additional schools – thus  the need to keep schools involved. Brown County Schools have the capacity to accommodate the projected growth in housing.
