The MIThrive initiative is a bipartisan package aimed at redeveloping vacant properties across our state. These properties, known as brownfield properties, are often the remains of previous industrial sites that are incredibly costly to clean up and redevelop. Because of these associated costs, they are viewed as unfavorable to developers and often sit vacant for many years. This legislation seeks to "close the gap" on the overall construction costs by allowing the developer to receive a portion of the newly generated tax revenue from that site, with the rest being distributed to the state and local government that houses the property. The legislation also includes provisions stating that no taxpayer money can be used toward the initial investment, placing the financial burden solely on the private developer.
