TIF the right move for Ballpark Commons

Ballpark Commons Residential Rendering

Last September the Franklin Common Council unanimously voted to create a tax incremental financing district (TIF) for Ballpark Commons, a proposed mixed-use development at and in the vicinity of the Rock Sports Complex located at 7900 Crystal Ridge Drive in Franklin.

The TIF is critical to the proposal.

My friend and former colleague in the state Senate, Jim Villa recently wrote a column about what the TIF concept means to our economy. You can and should read it here.
