Fiscal Note
As part of a Cooperative Plan between the City of Madison (City) and the Town of Blooming Grove (Town), a 70-acre piece of property is to be developed jointly between the two municipalities. Under the arrangement, the property would initially develop in the Town on City water and sewer; eventually transitioning to the City after a period of time. The proposed resolution allows the property to be attached to the City sooner than is allowed in the current plan and establishes a revenue sharing agreement if this occurs. Under this revenue sharing agreement, the City would pay 50% of local tax revenue from the property to the Town through 2027. If the property is moved into a Tax Incremental District (TID), the City would pay to the Town 50% of local revenue that would have been collected against the property if it was not in the TID. Any revenue sharing arrangements occurring from this resolution would need to be reflected in future budgets.
