Great article by SPU Commissioner Mathew Meyer. The SPU Commission is doing its job. Large Shakopee developments are favored with Tax Increment Financing. Individuals and small developers are not.
Our taxes went up over 38 percent from previous year with no property improvements and TIF groups get a bye. What does our city council have against us? Many say they can't afford living here.
Development should be spread out, not the big growth spurt we are forced to cover.
