Deadline Nov. 17 for TIF court challenge

On Oct. 25, Camden City Council, 4-1, passed second reading and final adoption of an ordinance designating a redevelopment project area tied to the creation of a tax incremental financing (TIF) district. The district, a 127-acre area along West DeKalb Street, will now be targeted for redevelopment by the city in the hopes of spurring private investors to do the same. An "anchor" of the TIF district is the proposed construction of a sports complex that may be managed by the YMCA of Columbia.
