The City of Cleburne is committed to an expansion of its tax base, an increase to its population, the promotion of development in the City, and to an ongoing improvement in the quality of life for its citizens. As these objectives are generally served by the enhancement and expansion of the local economy, the City of Cleburne will offer to rebate assessed and collected impact fees pursuant to new residential construction on certain "infill lots" through the "Infill Lot Impact Fee Rebate Incentive Program" as a stimulus for economic development in Cleburne. The program's main purpose is to encourage further development of these "infill lots" within the community, which in turn will aid in the validation and development of the residential housing market, increase the attractiveness of Cleburne to other commercial and retail businesses, and expand the local economy.
The Program is aimed at providing incentives to assist builders/developers with managing their costs related to the construction of new homes in what may typically be considered older or economically-distressed neighborhoods within the City limits, and as a tool for encouraging further residential development in these areas.
Eligible builders/developers can receive a reimbursement worth an amount equal to impact fees assessed and collected by the City up to $4,000.
