The Webster Groves school board approved a letter at their Feb. 11 meeting voicing opposition to a potential Rock Hill TIF project to be presented to the Rock Hill Board of Aldermen Tuesday, according to an STL Today report.
The letter (attached as a .PDF to this post) speaks against a proposed tax increment financing (TIF) development of a Rock Hill CVS Pharmacy location. TIF funds would be used toward a new fire station in Rock Hill, which is temporarily located at the corner of Manchester and McKnight roads -- the proposed site for the CVS project.
While CVS developers did not request using TIF for their plans, the CVS will not be built at the site if the fire station cannot be relocated, according to the report.
As Patch previously posted, Rock Hill Mayor Daniel DiPlacido shared at an earlier Webster Groves School District meeting that he was opposed to a TIF plan. The Rock Hill TIF Commission also unanimously voted against TIF for the project in January.
The next Rock Hill Board of Aldermen meeting is Feb. 19. While the agenda has not been released yet, STL Today reports it is unclear if the board will vote on the TIF plan at the meeting.
With a negative recommendation from the TIF Commission, the TIF plan could still pass with a super-majority vote from the Board of Aldermen.
