COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s Redevelopment Commission (RDC) met Tuesday afternoon to discuss the possibility of changing the boundaries of the downtown areaâ€™s Tax Increment Funding (TIF) District.
â€śWeâ€™re making sure properties that are legally supposed to be in there are there, and the ones that arenâ€™t are taken out,â€ť said Kevin Snell of Columbia Cityâ€™s RDC.
Snell said when the TIF District was adopted in 1993, some properties were put in the area in error.
The RDC hired a municipal advisor, Carter Dillon Umbaugh, LLC, at $2,900, to review the TIF area and provide suggestions to the commission. A representative from Carter Dillon Umbaugh, LLC was present at Tuesdayâ€™s meeting with a map to overview his findings.
RDC members are taking the map under review, and a special committee will be formed to make decisions on the map.
