- Economic Development
- Community Development
The City of South Milwaukee currently maintains several TIF Districts. The City will consider requests for assistance from development projects that generate new revenue from newly created property tax base above and beyond what is already in place. Competitive requests will have significant economic impact on the form of increased tax base, increased employment opportunities, significant private investment and a positive impact on the future development or redevelopment of the surrounding area.
For projects that meet specific development goals of the City, and show significant economic impact, the City may consider negotiating other types of incentives.
