Does Your Community Need Economic Development?

  • Does your community want to attract more businesses, create jobs, improve public services, and revitalize the local economy?
  • Will existing businesses respond to business retention and expansion incentives?
  • Have you heard about TIF, and how it can help?

We can untangle the complexities of TIF’s as well as other incentive programs. With our ongoing support services, our involvement does not end when a TIF District has been created.

Because of our continued involvement, local officials may confidently shift their attention toward setting policy and strategic decision making without having to be concerned about the administrative details of maintaining a Tax Increment Financing District.
