City considering tax increment financing plan; hearing set for April 20
The Harbor Springs City Council is hosting a public hearing on Monday, April 20 at 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers inside City Hall on the possibility of creating a TIF (Tax Increment Financing) district downtown. The goal of a TIF is to capture revenue from an increase in taxable values within the TIF district boundaries (roughly 14-percent of the city). TIF funds would then be used on a variety of projects to enhance the downtown and waterfront area.

Like anything with the word "tax" in it, explaining TIF (Tax Increment Financing)-- a funding mechanism used by many Downtown Development Authorities (DDA) that would be in effect through the 2017 tax year-- is a challenge.
