Sturgis City Council approves three TIFs to boost new development

STURGIS, S.D. (KBHB) – The Sturgis City Council last night approved a handful of T.I.F.’s that will mean new development.

Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie says there were three different Tax Increment Finance District’s approved.

Also approved was a TIF for development of a senior assisted as well as independent living facility.

And, a third TIF will get the new development of the Marcotte Property under way.

Ainslie says they are anticipating construction within all three TIF districts to begin this year. He says there could be some new homes ready to move in to early next spring.

He says Sturgis is in desperate need of new housing with very few homes available right now.
