Railroad Urban Renewal District Intent & Area


Intent & Area

The City of Helena established the Railroad Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District in 2016, which roughly extends from North Last Chance Gulch east to Interstate I-15 and includes land for several blocks on either side of the railroad. The URD/TIF District's goals are to revitalize the area by improving economic vitality, creating jobs, and encouraging investment in targeted neighborhoods.

Board

The City of Helena established a Railroad TIF Advisory Board in August 2017. The Board is comprised of 8 representatives of private businesses, property owners, and residents within the district, public associations and non-profits, the Helena School District, and Helena College. The Board is tasked with  completing annual work plans, reports, evaluations, and budgets and making recommendations for  allocation of TIF funding and any future amendments to the Railroad Urban Renewal District Plan.
