A Resolution to Authorize the Annual Reimbursement of a Portion of the Real Estate Taxes of the Property of the Windy Hill Foundation in the Plains for a Period of Five Years


Topic Description:

The Windy Hill Foundation is in the process of applying for a grant to complete a sixteen (16) unit affordable and workforce housing project in The Plains.  The grant application affords additional points in the event that the locality agrees to abate taxes on the project for a period of at least five (5) years.  Windy Hill has requested that the County agree to the abatement of taxes applicable only to the improvements on the property.  Due to the structure of the project, neither tax abatements nor a tax exemption ordinance are presently a legally available alternatives, but Windy Hill is legally eligible for a donation of the taxes which would be attributed to the value of the improvements.   The attached resolution provides for annual donations in that amount, and also provides for the alternative of an abatement ordinance should such abatement become legally permissible.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

Based upon the anticipated assessed value of the improvements planned by Windy Hill, the estimated annual impact would be approximately $7,600.
