Through visionary use of tax incremental planning the past 30 years, the City of Kiel has been able to fashion a growth plan that has served the community.

Kiel’s planning effort has helped local industry grow and expand, preserving and creating jobs, helping to maintain quality of life while keeping tax rates and utility costs reasonable for Kiel residents and businesses.

By working with developers, employers and retail business, the city has been able to remain strong, vital and supportive of the quality of life Kiel is known for.

Tax incremental planning that began in the 1980s has paved the way for to-day’s success stories, including some pictured here. It has also helped pay for infrastructure improvements without burdening the tax roll.

The planning we do today will help Kiel enjoy growth in future decades.
