Fiscal Note
This resolution would authorize a $2,885,000 loan to SHD, Inc. ("Borrower") for the redevelopment of the former Madison Dairy property located at the north 1000 Block of East Washington Avenue. The property is located outside the TID 36 boundary and the TID has also expended all $22 million of TIF funds authorized in the original Project Plan, requiring an amended TID Boundary and Project Plan.

TIF loan disbursal shall be contingent upon the approval of a TID 36 Project Plan and Boundary amendment by the Common Council and TIF Joint Review Board. Certification of the TID #36 amendment by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue is anticipated during the first quarter of 2017.

The separation of these two TIF loans is due to federal low-income housing tax credit regulations that exclude commercial and retail-related costs, including parking from tax credit consideration.

Both TIF loans would be repaid through incremental taxes generated by the Project and guaranteed by principals of Borrower.

The overall TIF assistance to both projects, totaling $3,450,000, represents 67% of the present value of all incremental taxes anticipated from both projects throughout the remaining 16-year life of TID #36 and its proposed boundary amendment. This figure exceeds the 55% Gateway established in TIF Policy. As required by TIF Policy, TIF staff met with the Board of Estimates on January 25, 2016 that authorized an exception to the 55% Gateway.
