Incentive Agreements / Documents

Assist the Agency with development and / or review of incentive agreements and the documents necessary to approve the agreements, including Chapter 380 Agreements, Tax Abatement and any other type agreement.

Problem Identification

  • The Agency needs someone to look after their best interests in the preparation or review of incentive documents
  • The Agency is unfamiliar with Chapter 380 agreements and the merits of this approach over other types of agreements
  • A “deal” has been preliminary worked out between the parties but there are not in-house capabilities to formalize an agreement

Service Goals

  • Prepare the desired Chapter 380 or Tax Abatement Agreements, Resolution or Ordinance for adoption, or
  • Review and provide recommended revisions to documents prepared by a developer or other third party
  • Utilize redline / strikeout format to clearly show revisions


  • All documents in Word format allowing for formal Agency approval of the agreements


  • A variety of incentives are easily incorporated into a Chapter 380 agreement
  • 380 agreements are much easier to develop, adopt, and implement than alternative approaches
