Each taxing jurisdiction agreed to repurpose a share of future payments on lieu of tax to leverage private investment made in the City’s central corridor, a unique incentive to advance redevelopment. A five partner strategic alliance was born for program implementation between Genesee County, City of Batavia, Batavia City School District, GCEDC and BDC.
