20-0804 13.1Enhanced Infrastructure Financing DistrictsCC- Study SessionENHANCED INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCING DISTRICTS (CONTINUED FROM THE SEPTEMBER 29, 2020, REGULAR MEETING) Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts (EIFDs) are a financing tool for infrastructure projects that provide broad community benefits. EIFDs allow such projects to be financed through tax increment generated from the growth in property taxes collected within a designated district boundary. EIFDs may be created by a city or county, and once created, the district stands as a separate government entity. The board of the Renewal Enterprise District (RED), a Joint Powers Authority formed in 2019 by the City of Santa Rosa and County of Sonoma, has voiced support for the possibility of forming a tax increment financing district as a way to assist in the assembly of public financing and leverage other funding sources to accelerate downtown infill housing production.   Not available Not available
