Chatfield EDA and City Council hold joint meeting


Fri, Mar 28th, 2014
Posted in Chatfield Government

In order to establish tax increment financing district (TIF) No. 2-5 the two bodies met together at the city council’s March 24 meeting. A public hearing was held on the modification of the municipal development district No. 2. No. 2-5 notes the second underlying document and the 5th district on the Olmsted County side of the city.

EDA members present included Michael Tuohy, Sue Keefe, Randy Paulson, and Molly Baum. Councilors Paul Novotny and Mike Urban serve with the EDA.

Mike Bubany, David Drown and Associates, explained that in the Olmsted County portion of Chatfield the EDA created the redevelopment project area and it is actually an EDA TIF District. The redevelopment TIF District is being established to reimburse the developer for added project costs, specifically the building of a retaining wall needed to make the site “developable.”

The Twiford area redevelopment property value will be froze as it is valued today with the homes and land value. Ninety percent of the property tax increase between the current value and the improved value due to the development will be reimbursed annually to the developer over the life of the TIF District, 15 years.

Bubany explained the difference in the city’s tax rate due to the TIF will be less than a point, adding the reimbursement is “significant to the developer, but not big bucks to the city.” If the property was not developed, the market value of the property would only increase due to normal inflation.

Chris Giesen, Community Development Coordinator, said the formal development agreement with Family Dollar had not been drafted yet. A purchase agreement contingent on the development agreement has the EDA selling the property for $210,000. A retail store of eighty-three hundred square feet is to be developed.

The city has received $233,000 from the State of Minnesota to offset some of the city’s infrastructure costs associated with the development. The company is to be assessed over 10 years the net remaining costs for infrastructure.

The TIF increment is for site improvements. The development of the Twiford area will be paid for by the developer, the state grant, and the TIF.

The EDA approved a resolution adopting the Modification of Redevelopment Project Area No. 2 and the Redevelopment Plan and the establishment of the TIF District 2-5 and TIF financing plan.
