Tax Increment Financing

TIF1 - Copy

As a result of a new State law created in 2021, cities, counties, and ports in Washington State may utilize Tax Increment Financing (TIF) to financially support infrastructure improvements (e.g., streets, water and sewer systems, sidewalks, parking facilities, stormwater systems, park or community facilities, and brownfield mitigation) necessary for private development, providing for jobs and additional tax revenue. 

Locally, the  City of Pasco created a TIF to support the Broadmoor Area and the Port of Pasco recently utilized a TIF at the Riemann Industrial Center. In the Stone Creek/Downtown area, a TIF can be an important tool allowing the City to make targeted infrastructure investments to spur economic development that will benefit College Place and the region. 

Final action on the formation of a TIA can only occur by Council with the adoption of an ordinance following the preparation and review of the TIF Project Analysis. A TIA ordinance is anticipated to be presented to Council in May 2023 for consideration.  Documents pertaining to the Proposed College Place Stone Creek/Downtown TIF #1 can be found below in the Document Center.
