State Street District Project Update

October 7, 2022

News & Notes

New District – State Street: The State Street Plan to promote compact, mixed-use, mixed-income, neighborhood-oriented development supportive of and supported by transit and other alternative transportation along the State Street corridor, was established on October 26, 2021. The State Street District has a base valuation date of January 1, 2021; a District sunset date of December 31, 2041; and tax increment revenue to the District terminating by September 30, 2042. Agency and ACHD staff have negotiated an interagency agreement as required by recent legislation to receive increment revenue on the highway district levy. Under the agreement, the Agency will receive this increment (approximately $5 million over the 20-year term of the district) and commit it exclusively to transportation components identified in the ACHD Cost Share Policy. The Agency Board and ACHD Commission approved the agreement, and legal counsel transmitted it to the State Tax Commission in July, ahead of the September 1 deadline. Project Lead: Matt Edmond
