Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Feasibility Study

Laying The Groundwork for Smart Growth


The City adopted the Azusa Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Specific Plan in November 2015 centered around the two Metro Gold Line Stations. The Specific Plan envisioned an Azusa that is pedestrian-oriented, transit-oriented, visually attractive, friendly, safe and representative of the overall values of the City.

The Specific Plan identified potential funding sources that could be studied to fulfill the vision of the Specific Plan. In March 2018 the City accepted a grant from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to study these potential funding sources which include special districts. These special districts would allow for the City to finance infrastructure improvements to enhance transit linkages and improve access to public transportation. No new taxes would be assessed. Rather, these improvements would be funded through the increased property tax revenues from new development.

Join us for our Community Open House on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to learn more about the study. Light refreshments will be provided. Registration is not required.
