City-Initiated TIRZ

A TIRZ can be created by 1) petition of property owners in the TIRZ, known as "petition-initiated" or 2) designated by the City, known as "city-initiated."

City-initiated TIRZ are designated as a response to a community need identified by the City. They are unique in that there is typically not a single developer to manage each project. In such cases, TIF staff would evaluate the projects to identify eligible expenses, coordinate the preparation and negotiation of legal documents, monitor construction, process reimbursement requests and monitor compliance.
