Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the City of Madison’s “TIF Policy” with changes to the “Jobs Project” section and authorizes Economic Development staff to prepare a “Small Cap” Business TIF Program to assist small businesses with expansion projects in healthy Tax Increment Districts. The Jobs Project section will be amended so that the current 60% net present value and 40% net present value options for a Jobs Project are consolidated to include only the 40% net present value Gap Analysis Waiver underwriting standard to qualified Employers. A “Jobs TIF - B” Program will also be created to assist medium-sized employment expansions. The Small Cap Business TIF Program is anticipated to have lower job creation/retention and qualification requirements and would involve smaller dollar values of TIF investment. Common Council approval of the program guidelines will be required prior to program implementation.

The proposed resolution only includes policy changes to the City of Madison TIF Loan Underwriting Policy, City of Madison TIF Goals, Objectives, and Process, and Jobs Project section (aka Jobs TIF). No projects using TIF funding in the 2018 Adopted Capital Budget are affected by this resolution and no additional City appropriation is required.
