SAID TRACT CONTAINING 123.43 ACRES MORE OR LESS. A map of the proposed Increment District boundaries and the proposed Project Area (each as described in the Project Plan) is provided below. The proposed Increment District is the area within which ad valorem tax revenue and sales and use tax revenue may be captured and utilized for the payment of TIF Project Costs. The proposed Project Area is a broader area because certain TIF Project Costs may be expended outside the boundaries of the Increment District in support of the Project as described below. The proposed Project Area will include a portion of Sections 19, 20, 29, and 30 in Township 8 North, Range 4 West, McClain County, Oklahoma. Copies of the Blanchard Economic Development Project Plan may be obtained free of charge at the City Clerk’s Office located at City Hall, 122 N. Main St., Blanchard, Oklahoma, any time after Thursday, January 29, 2015, during regular business hours. The Blanchard Economic Development Project Plan will encourage economic development in the City by facilitating the creation of significant additional commercial development along the U.S. Highway 62 corridor within the City that encourages commerce, increases retail opportunities, and generates a corresponding growth in the local tax base (collectively, the “Project”). The City recognizes the difficulty in attracting significant development to the area due to the lack of adequate infrastructure necessary to serve to serve substantial development. The City will construct or cause to be constructed additional supporting public infrastructure necessary to facilitate additional commercial development throughout the Increment District. Development will proceed based on commercial opportunities that are presented to the City, all in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Proposed Project Costs include significant traffic upgrades, including construction, reconstruction, and/or resurfacing of streets, intersection improvements, signalization, sidewalks, and lighting, plus certain water and sewer line improvements to serve existing and potential development along U.S. Highway 62, along with potential acquisition of certain property within the Increment District. The proposed Project Costs (as described in the Project Plan) total approximately $6.69 million. Incremental increases in ad valorem tax revenue and sales and use tax revenue that are generated within the boundaries of the Increment District will serve as the revenue source for financing the proposed Project Costs. Said revenues are the public revenues directly attributable to the Project resulting from establishment of the Increment District.
