Real property tax incentives may be granted for projects involving commercial remodeling or new construction. Projects must be consistent with local zoning as well as and community objectives, and be located in the designated CRA districts. See Zoning Map

Benefits: Substantial real estate property tax reduction.

CRA Agreement: In order to receive a real property tax abatement, an agreement must be entered between the local jurisdiction and the investor prior to commencement of the project. The first step in reaching such an agreement, a detailed application must be filed. The application will then be considered through a series of public hearings, including before the Township CRA Committee, the Board of Trustees, and the County Commissioners.

Rate/Terms: The value of the incentive is negotiated individually for commercial projects. Typical tax abatements granted are in the range of 50% for a ten year period, and are based upon the amount increased property value attributed to new construction and/or remodeling, as well as new jobs brought to the community.
