Allen County Redevelopment Commission

The Allen County Redevelopment Commission is in the process of designating an area of real estate in Allen County, Indiana as an Economic Development Area (EDA).  The purpose of this designation is to allow the Allen County Redevelopment Commission to use tax increment financing to assist in financing public infrastructure improvements.

The Dupont Diebold EDA Plan encompasses an area in Allen County, Indiana in Sections 25, 26, 35, and 36 of Perry Township containing 756.32 acres.  Within the Dupont Diebold EDA there will be an allocation area established for the purpose of collecting tax increment financing revenue from the increase in assessed value. The allocation area comprises 233.57 acres of mostly undeveloped land around the Parkview Regional Medical Center bounded by Diebold Rd. on the East, Union Chapel Rd. on the North, Dupont Rd. on the South, and I-69 on the West. 

The Allen County Redevelopment Commission will hold a public hearing on February 13, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 035 of Citizens Square for the purpose of hearing from persons interested in or affected by the creation of the Dupont Diebold EDA.
