A result of creative financing, this project was made possible by a public-private partnership with our team, the District, the OFCC and a private developer. We worked together with the District, Township, and private developers to put together a unique financial plan to make this new school a possibility for a financially compromised District. The township creatively leveraged the use of tax increment financing (TIF) for development projects on the 100-acre Glen Este campus, which the district sold to the township for $1. The Glen Este site included plans for future development with a plan for a percentage of the TIF revenue to fund up to 65 percent of the new high school’s cost. The remaining cost of the $102 million project and cost of other District renovation work is covered by district permanent improvement funds.
