Special Districts In Land Development


Learn about the current issues and complexities with utilizing special districts in land development.

Special districts are a popular form of government in the United States. Over 40,000 of these districts currently exist, providing services that range from public water and wastewater to development of business districts and sports facilities. Formation of these districts can be of great assistance to those seeking to develop or redevelop property or projects, including but not limited to P3 projects, as they can provide benefits in the form of new revenues and tax-exempt financing. In order to take advantage of these benefits, those forming and using them need to be conscious of the federal and state laws that must be complied with, including but not limited to IRS regulations. This topic will explore the topic of special districts, their uses and benefits, best practices in structuring and implementing special districts, and how they can be used in conjunction with other types of government for beneficial purposes.
