Tax Increment Finance Districts

The City of Whitewater created Tax Incremental Districts (TIDs) under authority of Wisconsin Statute Section 66.1105 primarily to promote the orderly development and redevelopment of the city. The construction of streets and utilities are needed in order to provide incentives for industrial, commercial and residential mixed-use growth, as well as to stimulate private sector development throughout the TID. The new development and redevelopment, which will occur as a result of the projects undertaken within the District boundaries, will provide the City with additional tax base and provide employment opportunities.
