Chatfield establishes new TIF district


Mon, May 4th, 2015
Posted in Chatfield Government

The Chatfield City Council held a joint meeting with the Chatfield EDA on April 27. Alicia Hinckly and EB Allen of H and A Real Estate want to build a “Cabin Coffee” restaurant on property at the west side of North Main St. at the Union St. intersection. In order to redevelop that property, the owners have requested tax increment financing (TIF) to assist with demolition of the house at 391 North Main and other site improvement expenses.

The value of the TIF assistance is not to exceed $81,000. EB Allen explained that they have researched this franchise restaurant in similar size towns.

Chris Giesen, EDA Coordinator, said they have been working with the owners for the last couple of months. With the opening of the 1,800 square foot restaurant eight new full time jobs will be provided. The restaurant will have indoor and outdoor seating, parking, and a drive-thru window.

During the public hearing Mike Bubany, David Drown and Associates, reviewed plans for TIF district 2-6. The district will include four parcels. There is the possibility for another redevelopment project in the future in this new TIF District..

There were no comments from the public. A resolution was approved by the city council establishing TIF District 2-6. A resolution was passed by the city council authorizing the EDA to execute the proposed development agreement with H & A Real Estate which implements and details the TIF assistance.

The EDA board approved the development agreement with H & A Real Estate for a “Cabin Coffee” restaurant.

Chatfield Center for the Arts

The city council passed a resolution authorizing the EDA to execute the “Capital Grant General Obligation Bond Financial Declaration” to record it with the Fillmore County Recorder. The EDA had received a $5.352 million dollar grant from the state of Minn. to fund Phase 1 renovation of the CCA. With this resolution, it is declared that the CCA remains in public ownership.
