NOTICE OF HEARING

WASATCH COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT PROJECT AREA


On March 28, 2022 the Millcreek Community Reinvestment Agency (the “Agency”), by resolution, authorized the preparation of drafts of a Project Area Plan and a Project Area Budget (the “Draft Plan & Budget”) for the Wasatch Community Reinvestment Area (the “CRA”). The Draft Plan and Budget provides, among other things, an evaluation of appropriate land uses and economic and community development forecasts for the land encompassed by the CRA. The Draft Plan and Budget also sets forth the aims and objectives of the anticipated new development, including its scope, its mechanism, and its value to the residents of the city of Millcreek (the “City”) and other taxing districts. 


The Agency has requested $4,965,538 in property tax incremental revenues that will be generated by development within the CRA to fund a portion of the project development costs within the CRA. These property tax revenues will be used for the following:


Uses of Tax Increment

Uses    Total    NPV at 4.00%

Redevelopment Activities (Infrastructure, Relocation, Incentives, etc.)     $4,178,655      $2,819,318 

CRA Housing Requirement (estimated @ 10%)     496,554      335,022 

Agency Administration (5%)     248,277      167,511 

County Administration (5% of County’s Tax Increment)     42,052      28,372 

Total Uses of Tax Increment Funds    $4,965,538    $3,350,224


These property tax revenues are a result from an increase in valuation of property within the Project Area and will be paid to the Agency rather than to the taxing entity to which the tax revenue would otherwise have been paid if one or more of the taxing entities below agree to share the property tax increase under an interlocal agreement. The property taxes will be levied by the following governmental entities, and, assuming current tax rates, the taxes paid to the Agency for this CRA from each taxing entity will be as following:


Sources of Tax Increment Funds

Entity    Total

Salt Lake County     $663,940 

Salt Lake County Library     177,100 

Granite School District     2,654,638 

Millcreek City     634,797 

South Salt Lake Valley Mosquito Abatement District     4,484 

Mt. Olympus Improvement District     85,561 

Central Utah Water Conservancy District     149,452 

Unified Fire Service Area     595,566 

Total Sources of Tax Increment Funds     $4,965,538 


All of the property tax increment to be paid to the Agency for the development in the CRA are taxes that will be generated only if the CRA is developed. 

The Draft Plan and Budget for the Proposed Project Area have been prepared and the Agency gives notice that a public hearing on the Draft Plan and Budget will be held on May 23, 2022 at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as feasible, at Millcreek City Hall, 3330 S 1300 E, Millcreek, Utah (the “City Offices”). At the public hearing, the Agency will hear public comment on and objections, if any, to the Draft Plan and Budget, including whether the Draft Plan and Budget should be revised, approved, or rejected. The Agency will also receive all written objections, if any, to the Draft Plan and Budget. The Agency also invites public comments in support of the Draft Plan and Budget. All interested persons are invited to submit to the Agency comments on the Draft Plan and Budget before the date of the hearing. Any person objecting to the Draft Plan and Budget or contesting the regularity of any of the proceedings to adopt the Draft Plan and Budget may appear before the Agency’s governing board at the hearing to show cause why the Draft Plan and Budget should not be adopted.
