Summary:Summary

The Lealman Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) Trust was established June 7, 2016 by the Board of County Commissioners to support redevelopment activities specified in the Lealman CRA Plan. The CRA undertakes
activities/projects for the elimination and prevention of identified deterioration and economically distressed conditions in the designated area. Public funding is used to stimulate private sector investment in this endeavor.

Public revenues to the CRA are generated through Tax Increment Financing (TIF) as defined by State statute. Since this district is in the county's unincorporated area, the General Fund contributes TIF resources based on both the countywide and the Municipal Service Taxing Unit (MSTU) property tax collections.

The proposed FY23 total budget for the Lealman CRA Trust is $6,324,040.00 and includes estimated revenues (County Tax Increment Finance (TIF), Municipal Services Taxing Unit TIF and Interest) of $3,062,340.00 and an estimated carryover of $3,261,700.00 from the FY22 Adopted Budget.
