Title

Approving the Creation of and the Project Plan and Boundary for Tax Incremental District (TID) #49 (Femrite Dr), City of Madison.

Body

WHEREAS Chapter 105 of the Laws of 1975 of the State of Wisconsin created the Tax Increment Law, Section 66.1105, Wisconsin Statutes; and

 

WHEREAS said Law sets forth certain steps which must be followed to create a Tax Incremental District and approve a Project Plan and Boundary; and

 

WHEREAS Tax Incremental District (TID) #49 is described below; and

 

WHEREAS a Notice of Public Hearing by the Plan Commission to afford interested parties an opportunity to express their views on the creation of the TID Project Plan and Boundary for TID #49 was published in the Wisconsin State Journal on June 4, 2021 and June 11, 2021 as required by said Law; and

 

WHEREAS prior to publication of the Notice of Public Hearing a copy of the Notice was sent by first-class mail to each of the chief executive officers or administrators of all local governmental entities having the power to levy taxes on property within the proposed TID #49 Boundary; and

 

WHEREAS the Plan Commission of the City of Madison held a public hearing on June 21, 2021, at which interested parties were afforded an opportunity to express their views on the proposed creation of the Project Plan and Boundary for TID #49; and

 

WHEREAS the Plan Commission has made the following findings as indicated in the attached report:

 

1.                     No less than 50%, by area, of the real property within the TID is suitable and zoned for industrial use within the meaning of 66.1105(2), Wisconsin Statutes.

 

2.                     The improvement of such area is likely to significantly enhance the value of a substantial portion of the other real property in the TID.

 

3.                     The aggregate value of equalized taxable property of the TID, plus all existing TIDs, does not exceed 12% of the total value of equalized taxable property within the City.

 

4.                     The project costs relate directly to promoting industrial development.

 

5.                     Tax Incremental District #49 (Femrite Dr) is hereby declared an industrial district.

 

WHEREAS the Plan Commission has determined that the TID meets the basic requirements of City TIF Policy for tax incremental district proposals adopted by the Common Council on April 17, 2001, amended on March 31, 2009, and amended again on February 25, 2014 (insofar as they are applicable to the creation of a district boundary and a project plan), conforms to the Comprehensive Plan for the City of Madison and is consistent with the review criteria adopted at the same time, specifically, that the TID supports economic development activities intended to stabilize and diversify the City’s economic base. 

 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Common Council of the City of Madison hereby confirms and adopts the recitals stated above and finds that:

 

1.                     No less than 50%, by area, of the real property within the TID is suitable for industrial uses within the meaning of Section 66.1105(2), Wisconsin Statutes.

 

2.                     The improvement of such area is likely to significantly enhance the value of a substantial portion of the other real property in the TID.

 

3.                     The aggregate value of equalized taxable property of the TID, plus all existing TIDs, does not exceed 12% of the total value of equalized taxable property within the City.

 

4.                     The project costs relate directly to promoting industrial development.

 

5.                     TID #49 (Femrite Dr) is hereby declared an industrial district.

 

6.                     Less than 35% of the area of TID #49 is used for retail purposes. 

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that TID #49 (Femrite Dr), City of Madison, is hereby created as of January 1, 2021, and that the boundaries for said TID are as below-described and as described in the Project Plan and that the boundaries of said TID include only whole units of property assessed for general property tax purposes.

 

BE IT STILL FURTHER RESOLVED that the attached Project Plan for TID #49 (Femrite DR), City of Madison, is hereby adopted as the Project Plan for said District and such plan is feasible and in conformity with the Comprehensive Plan for the City of Madison and will add to the sound growth of the City.

 

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that any real property within the district that is found suitable for industrial sites and is zoned for industrial use will remain zoned for industrial use for the life of the tax incremental district.
