“Despite being a hot-button issue in our community, TIF is often not well understood,” said City Club Missoula chair Susan Hay Patrick. “Depending on the specific project, and whom you ask about it, TIF is either an essential mechanism for Missoula to stimulate much-needed economic development in areas where it wouldn’t otherwise occur, or a giveaway to developers that strains city services without providing a corresponding public benefit. We hope attendees will come away with a better understanding of how TIF works, and its pros and cons.
