Common Council Considers Possible funding for Development Located in TIF District #10 – Marshfield Mall
Tax Incremental Finance (TIF) is a financing option that allows a municipality (city, village or town) to fund infrastructure and other improvements, through property tax revenue of newly developed property. A municipality identifies an area, the tax incremental district (TID), as appropriate for a certain type of development. The municipality identifies projects to encourage and facilitate the desired development. Then as property values rise, the municipality uses the property tax paid on that development to pay for the projects. After the project costs are paid, the municipality closes the TID.
Tax Increment Finance District No. 10 is a rehabilitation and conservation district that has been created for the purpose of promoting the orderly development of the City of Marshfield. The specific purpose of TID No. 10 is to promote the rehabilitation of properties within the TID, redevelopment of the underutilized property, stimulate revitalization, enhance the value of the property, and broaden the property tax base. The location of TID No. 10 is the entire city block that the Marshfield Mall sits on and includes McDonald’s, United FCS, BMO Harris Bank, Pizza Hut, Quality Inn, Central City Plaza, and Central City Credit Union. The district was created on September 30, 2015. LEARN MORE
