After a period of calm over the notion of Princeton annexing land in Baldwin Township, the city’s economic development authority raised the possibility of charging newly annexed property owners a lower tax rate until they received full city services.
It’s an idea that has been tried elsewhere, like Elk River, as the Union-Eagle’s Joel Stottrup writes in this story.
There’s a lot of time to weigh in, since the matter would go to the city planning commission and then the full city council.
Thanks to Sue Hix for calling my attention to the Union-Eagle story.
