KALISPELL - Kalispell City Council members unanimously approved the Glacier Rail Park plan on Monday.
The decision clears the way to implement a tax increment financing plan called Targeted Economic Development District (TEDD).
Officials say the purpose of the development plan is to encourage value-added industries to help revitalize a vacant lot.
Kalispell City Planner Jarod Nygren says that this will ensure the city of Kalispell uses its resources as best of its abilities.
“It’s just another financing tool to go along with the TIGER grant to help the Glacier Rail Park develop to its fullest potential moving into the future.”
The plans will take effect in 30 days. Click here for more information.
