Pearl City TIF District FY10 Overview

Established on February 5, 1996 and amended once in 1999, the Pearl City TIF District Redevelopment Project Area includes portions of the central business district as well as other commercial and residential areas within the community.  Its purpose is to encourage the economic well-being of the Village by providing resources for the redevelopment and rehabilitation of commercial, residential and other mixed-use properties.  The creation of affordable housing is a major objective of the Pearl City TIF District.

For Fiscal Year 2010, (beginning May 1, 2009 and ending April 30, 2010), the Pearl City TIF District Special Fund (the “TIF Fund”) had a negative beginning balance of $-69,293.  With deposits in the amount of $466,035, the total amount available in the TIF Fund during FY2010 was $396,742.   Sources of funds included Real Estate Tax Increment ($462,446), Miscellaneous Income ($1,882)  and Interest Income ($1,707) as depicted in Figure 1 below.

The total public and private TIF eligible project costs expended from the TIF Fund during FY2010 amounted to $579,431 and included categories of funds shown in Figure 2 below.  The Village entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement with Pearl City CUSD #200 to reimburse capital costs and address annual net revenue loss (if any) attributed to the TIF District; and Loran Township in 1996 for the purpose of reimbursing capital costs and address annual net revenue loss (if any) attributed to portions of the redevelopment project area which are not included in new residential subdivisions occurring after the Pearl City TIF District was established.  An Intergovernmental Agreement between the Village and the Pearl City Fire Protection District was approved in 2008 for the purpose of reimbursing capital costs equal to the additional revenue generated from the increase in the Fire  Protection District’s limiting rate as a result of the referendum passed at the February 2008 election.

The ending balance of the Special TIF Fund as of April 30, 2010, was a deficit of -$182,689.   The real estate tax increment generated by the Pearl City TIF District for FY2011 is estimated to be $455,311.
