Capital and Economic Development Projects


  • Established by the City on December 22, 1997 pursuant to Ordinance No. 130807
    • City approved the Santa Fe Redevelopment Project on November 6, 2000 pursuant to Ordinance
      No. 14647
    • TIF will terminate November 5, 2023
  • Project was anticipated to consist of approximately 220,200 square feet of new retail/commercial space, the existing Winstead’s restaurant, approximately eight new residential units and related off-site public improvements generally located on 29 acres along the west side of Noland Road and south of South Side Boulevard
  • City entered into a Redevelopment Agreement on August 7, 2000 that has been amended twice

Noland Road TIF Revenues Reimbursement Agreement

  • Defines and reimburses the City for shortfall payments, as well as adds revenues to the revenue streams earmarked for the outstanding Santa Fe Bonds
  • If the total of
    • (a) EATs from the Noland Road TIF Projects 3 and 41,
    • (b) Santa Fe TIF Revenues (including PILOTs and EATs, but excluding any payments received by the City
      or deposited into the Special Allocation Fund pursuant to the Santa Fe Neighborhood Cooperative
    • (c) Interest on the Santa Fe TIF Revenues in the Special Allocation Fund
    • (d) Interest on the debt service fund for the outstanding Santa Fe Bonds
    • (e) State TIF Revenues from the Santa Fe TIF

             is less than the debt service on the Series 2015A & 2015B Bonds, then the Noland Road TIF Revenues
             Reimbursement Agreement requires the City to pay such shortfall from 50% of the 1% general sales tax
             within the Noland Road TIF Projects 1, 2, 3, and 4 (“City Super TIF” or “City Additional Contribution”), and then,
             if that does not cover the shortfall, the City will have to appropriate other revenues to cover the debt service (this
             last appropriation is what the Developer is require to reimburse semiannually and is referred to as the “City’s
             Semiannual Contribution Amount”).

  • If the debt service is covered by the TIF Revenues described on (a)-(e) above, the City does not have to add any
    additional funds for supersinkers or otherwise, only scheduled debt service must be met
  • Twice a year the Developer is required to reimburse the City for the City’s Semiannual Contribution Amount, calculated as follows:
    • Series 2015A and Series 2015B Debt Service minus (a) the sum of (a)-(e) above and (b) the City Super
      TIF Amount
  • The City does not get reimbursed for the City Super TIF amounts, but does get reimbursed for the City’s Semiannual Contribution Amount (the extent to which the TIF and City Super TIF fall short of the debt service on the Series 2015A and Series 2015B Bonds)
  • The Developer has to reimburse the City’s Semiannual Contribution Amount, but only to a certain extent:
    • The maximum dollar amount of reimbursement for any semiannual payment date is $116,500 and the
      Developer gets a credit against that amount for 50% of any EATs and PILOTs created during the applicable
      semiannual period by businesses developed on land in the Santa Fe TIF Area that was vacant on August
      19, 2014
  • The City must bill the Developer for the reimbursement on or before June 1 and December 1 of each year with a
    calculation of how the City arrived at the amount billed

Revenue Sources

    levels in the year before TIF collection was activated ($0).
  • NEW STATE REVENUES: Subject to annual appropriation by the General Assembly, new state revenues equal
    the incremental increase in the general revenue portion of the state sales tax revenues, excluding taxes deposited to the school district trust fund, sales and use taxes on motor vehicles, trailers, boats and outboard motors, and future sales taxes earmarked by law
