To take advantage of the benefits, an owner or developer of property within the Enterprise Zone must simply obtain a building permit (the fee for which is waived) and a "certificate of eligibility" from the City of Carbondale's Building and Neighborhood Services Division.
There are detailed procedures to amend the boundaries of the Enterprise Zone. The Zone may be extended to incorporate a property if a specific improvement to the property is being considered. Contact the City of Carbondale or Greater Egypt Regional Planning for detailed information.
The Zone expires in 2020. In 2010, the local taxing bodies will have an opportunity to determine the level of real estate tax they will abate for the next 10 years.
The City offers a Tax Increment Financing Program and Downtown Façade Program. Contact the Economic Development Director for more information.
