66.1105(2)(k)1.1. "Tax incremental district" means a contiguous geographic area within a city defined and created by resolution of the local legislative body, consisting solely of whole units of property as are assessed for general property tax purposes, other than railroad rights-of-way, rivers or highways. Railroad rights-of-way, rivers or highways may be included in a tax incremental district only if they are continuously bounded on either side, or on both sides, by whole units of property as are assessed for general property tax purposes which are in the tax incremental district. "Tax incremental district" does not include any area identified as a wetland on a map under s. 23.32, except for an area identified on such a map that has been converted in compliance with state law so that it is no longer a wetland and except as provided in subd. 2.
66.1105(2)(k)2. 2. For an area that is identified as a wetland on a map under s. 23.32 and that is within the boundaries of a tax incremental district or is part of a tax incremental district parcel, the area shall be considered part of the tax incremental district for determining the applicability of exemptions from or compliance with water quality standards that are applicable to wetlands.
66.1105(2)(L) (L) "Taxable property" means all real and personal taxable property located in a tax incremental district.
66.1105(2)(m) (m) "Value increment" means the equalized value of all taxable property in a tax incremental district in any year minus the tax incremental base. In any year "value increment" is positive if the tax incremental base is less than the aggregate value of taxable property as equalized by the department of revenue; it is negative if that base exceeds that aggregate value.
66.1105(3) (3)Powers of cities. In addition to any other powers conferred by law, a city may exercise any powers necessary and convenient to carry out the purposes of this section, including the power to:
66.1105(3)(a) (a) Create tax incremental districts and define the boundaries of the districts;
66.1105(3)(b) (b) Cause project plans to be prepared, approve the plans, and implement the provisions and effectuate the purposes of the plans;

66.1105(3)(f) (f) Designate, by ordinance or resolution, the local housing authority, the local redevelopmental authority, or both jointly, or the local community development authority, as agent of the city, to perform all acts, except the development of the master plan of the city, which are otherwise performed by the planning commission under this section and s. 66.1337.
66.1105(3)(g) (g) Create a standing joint review board that may remain in existence for the entire time that any tax incremental district exists in the city. All of the provisions that apply to a joint review board that is convened under sub. (4m) (a) apply to a standing joint review board that is created under this paragraph. A city may disband a joint review board that is created under this paragraph at any time.
66.1105(4) (4)Creation of tax incremental districts and approval of project plans. In order to implement the provisions of this section, the following steps and plans are required:
66.1105(4)(a) (a) Holding of a public hearing by the planning commission at which interested parties are afforded a reasonable opportunity to express their views on the proposed creation of a tax incremental district and the proposed boundaries of the district. Notice of the hearing shall be published as a class 2 notice, under ch. 985. Before publication, a copy of the notice shall be sent by first class mail to the chief executive officer or administrator of all local governmental entities having the power to levy taxes on property located within the proposed district and to the school board of any school district which includes property located within the proposed district. For a county with no chief executive officer or administrator, notice shall be sent to the county board chairperson.
66.1105(4)(b) (b) Designation by the planning commission of the boundaries of a tax incremental district recommended by it and submission of the recommendation to the local legislative body.
66.1105(4)(c) (c) Identification of the specific property to be included under par. (gm) 4. as blighted or in need of rehabilitation or conservation work. Owners of the property identified shall be notified of the proposed finding and the date of the hearing to be held under par. (e) at least 15 days prior to the date of the hearing. In cities with a redevelopment authority under s. 66.1333, the notification required under this paragraph may be provided with the notice required under s. 66.1333 (6) (b) 3., if the notice is transmitted at least 15 days prior to the date of the hearing to be held under par. (e).
66.1105(4)(d) (d) Preparation and adoption by the planning commission of a proposed project plan for each tax incremental district.
66.1105(4)(e) (e) At least 14 days before adopting a resolution under par. (gm), holding of a public hearing by the planning commission at which interested parties are afforded a reasonable opportunity to express their views on the proposed project plan. The hearing may be held in conjunction with the hearing provided for in par. (a). If the city anticipates that the proposed project plan's project costs may include cash grants made by the city to owners, lessees, or developers of land that is located within the tax incremental district, the hearing notice shall contain a statement to that effect. Notice of the hearing shall be published as a class 2 notice, under ch. 985. The notice shall include a statement advising that a copy of the proposed project plan will be provided on request. Before publication, a copy of the notice shall be sent by 1st class mail to the chief executive officer or administrator of all local governmental entities having the power to levy taxes on property within the district and to the school board of any school district which includes property located within the proposed district. For a county with no chief executive officer or administrator, notice shall be sent to the county board chairperson.
66.1105(4)(f) (f) Adoption by the planning commission of a project plan for each tax incremental district and submission of the plan to the local legislative body. The plan shall include a statement listing the kind, number and location of all proposed public works or improvements within the district or, to the extent provided in sub. (2) (f) 1. k. and 1. n., outside the district, an economic feasibility study, a detailed list of estimated project costs, and a description of the methods of financing all estimated project costs and the time when the related costs or monetary obligations are to be incurred. The plan shall also include a map showing existing uses and conditions of real property in the district; a map showing proposed improvements and uses in the district; proposed changes of zoning ordinances, master plan, if any, map, building codes and city ordinances; a list of estimated nonproject costs; and a statement of the proposed method for the relocation of any persons to be displaced. The plan shall indicate how creation of the tax incremental district promotes the orderly development of the city. The city shall include in the plan an opinion of the city attorney or of an attorney retained by the city advising whether the plan is complete and complies with this section.
66.1105(4)(g) (g) Approval by the local legislative body of a project plan prior to or concurrent with the adoption of a resolution under par. (gm). The approval shall be by resolution which contains findings that the plan is feasible and in conformity with the master plan, if any, of the city.
66.1105(4)(gm) (gm) Adoption by the local legislative body of a resolution which:
66.1105(4)(gm)1. 1. Describes the boundaries, which may, but need not, be the same as those recommended by the planning commission, of a tax incremental district with sufficient definiteness to identify with ordinary and reasonable certainty the territory included in the district. The boundaries of the tax incremental district may not include any annexed territory that was not within the boundaries of the city on January 1, 2004, unless at least 3 years have elapsed since the territory was annexed by the city, unless the city enters into a cooperative plan boundary agreement, under s. 66.0301 (6) or 66.0307, with the town from which the territory was annexed, or unless the city and town enter into another kind of agreement relating to the annexation except that, notwithstanding these conditions, the city may include territory that was not within the boundaries of the city on January 1, 2004, if the city pledges to pay the town an amount equal to the property taxes levied on the territory by the town at the time of the annexation for each of the next 5 years. If, as the result of a pledge by the city to pay the town an amount equal to the property taxes levied on the territory by the town at the time of the annexation for each of the next 5 years, the city includes territory in a tax incremental district that was not within the boundaries of the city on January 1, 2004, the city's pledge is enforceable by the town from which the territory was annexed. The boundaries shall include only those whole units of property as are assessed for general property tax purposes. Property standing vacant for an entire 7-year period immediately preceding adoption of the resolution creating a tax incremental district may not comprise more than 25 percent of the area in the tax incremental district, unless the tax incremental district is suitable under subd. 4. a. for either industrial sites or mixed use development and the local legislative body implements an approved project plan to promote industrial development within the meaning of s. 66.1101 if the district has been designated as suitable for industrial sites, or mixed-use development if the district has been designated as suitable for mixed-use development. In this subdivision, "vacant property" includes property where the fair market value or replacement cost value of structural improvements on the parcel is less than the fair market value of the land. In this subdivision, "vacant property" does not include property acquired by the local legislative body under ch. 32, property included within the abandoned Park East freeway corridor or the abandoned Park West freeway corridor in Milwaukee County, or property that is contaminated by environmental pollution, as defined in s. 66.1106 (1) (d).
66.1105(4)(gm)2. 2. Creates the district as of a date provided in the resolution. If the resolution is adopted during the period between January 2 and September 30, then the date shall be the next preceding January 1. If the resolution is adopted during the period between October 1 and December 31, then the date shall be the next subsequent January 1. If the resolution is adopted on January 1, the district is created on that January 1.
66.1105(4)(gm)3. 3. Assigns a name to the district for identification purposes. The first district created shall be known as "Tax Incremental District Number One, City of ...." and the first district created under sub. (18) shall be known as "Multijurisdictional District Number One, City of ...". Each subsequently created district shall be assigned the next consecutive number.
66.1105(4)(gm)4. 4. Contains findings that:
66.1105(4)(gm)4.a. a. Not less than 50%, by area, of the real property within the district is at least one of the following: a blighted area; in need of rehabilitation or conservation work, as defined in s. 66.1337 (2m) (a); suitable for industrial sites within the meaning of s. 66.1101 and has been zoned for industrial use; or suitable for mixed-use development; and
66.1105(4)(gm)4.b. b. The improvement of the area is likely to enhance significantly the value of substantially all of the other real property in the district. It is not necessary to identify the specific parcels meeting the criteria; and
66.1105(4)(gm)4.bm. bm. The project costs relate directly to eliminating blight, directly serve to rehabilitate or conserve the area or directly serve to promote industrial development, consistent with the purpose for which the tax incremental district is created under subd. 4. a.; and
66.1105(4)(gm)4.c. c. Except as provided in subs. (10) (c), (16) (d), (17), and (18) (c) 3., the equalized value of taxable property of the district plus the value increment of all existing districts does not exceed 12 percent of the total equalized value of taxable property within the city. In determining the equalized value of taxable property under this subd. 4. c. or sub. (17) (c), the department of revenue shall base its calculations on the most recent equalized value of taxable property of the district that is reported under s. 70.57 (1m) before the date on which the resolution under this paragraph is adopted. If the department of revenue determines that a local legislative body exceeds the 12 percent limit described in this subd. 4. c. or sub. (17) (c), the department shall notify the city of its noncompliance, in writing, not later than December 31 of the year in which the department receives the completed application or amendment forms described in sub. (5) (b).
66.1105(4)(gm)5. 5. Confirms that any real property within the district that is found suitable for industrial sites and is zoned for industrial use under subd. 4. a. will remain zoned for industrial use for the life of the tax incremental district.
66.1105(4)(gm)6. 6. Declares that the district is a blighted area district, a rehabilitation or conservation district, an industrial district, or a mixed-use district based on the identification and classification of the property included within the district under par. (c) and subd. 4. a. If the district is not exclusively blighted, rehabilitation or conservation, industrial, or mixed use, the declaration under this subdivision shall be based on which classification is predominant with regard to the area described in subd. 4. a.
66.1105(4)(gs) (gs) Review by a joint review board, acting under sub. (4m), that results in its approval of the resolution under par. (gm).
66.1105(4)(h)1.1. Subject to subds. 2., 4., 5., and 6., the planning commission may, by resolution, adopt an amendment to a project plan. The amendment is subject to approval by the local legislative body and approval requires the same findings as provided in par. (g) and, if the amendment adds territory to a district under subd. 2., approval also requires the same findings as provided in par. (gm) 4. c. Any amendment to a project plan is also subject to review by a joint review board, acting under sub. (4m). Adoption of an amendment to a project plan shall be preceded by a public hearing held by the plan commission at which interested parties shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to express their views on the amendment. Notice of the hearing shall be published as a class 2 notice, under ch. 985. The notice shall include a statement of the purpose and cost of the amendment and shall advise that a copy of the amendment will be provided on request. Before publication, a copy of the notice shall be sent by 1st class mail to the chief executive officer or administrator of all local governmental entities having the power to levy taxes on property within the district and to the school board of any school district which includes property located within the proposed district. For a county with no chief executive officer or administrator, this notice shall be sent to the county board chairperson.
66.1105(4)(h)2. 2. Except as provided in subds. 4., 5., 7., 8., 9., and 10., the planning commission may adopt an amendment to a project plan under subd. 1. to modify the district's boundaries, not more than 4 times during the district's existence, by subtracting territory from the district in a way that does not remove contiguity from the district or by adding territory to the district that is contiguous to the district and that is served by public works or improvements that were created as part of the district's project plan. A single amendment to a project plan that both adds and subtracts territory shall be counted under this subdivision as one amendment of a project plan.
66.1105(4)(h)4. 4. With regard to a village that has a population of less than 10,000, was incorporated in 1914 and is located in a county that has a population of less than 25,000 and that contains a portion of the Yellow River and the Chequamegon Waters Flowage, not more than once during the 11 years after the tax incremental district is created, the planning commission may adopt an amendment to a project plan under subd. 1. to modify the district's boundaries by adding territory to the district that is contiguous to the district and that is to be served by public works or improvements that were created as part of the district's project plan. Expenditures for project costs that are incurred because of an amendment to a project plan to which this subdivision applies may be made for not more than 5 years after the date on which the local legislative body adopts a resolution amending the project plan.
66.1105(4)(h)5. 5. With regard to a city that has a population of at least 80,000 that was incorporated in 1850 and that is in a county with a population of less than 175,000 that is adjacent to one of the Great Lakes, the planning commission may adopt an amendment to a project plan under subd. 1. to modify the district's boundaries by adding territory to the district that is contiguous to the district and that is served by public works or improvements that were created as part of the district's project plan not more than once during the expenditure period specified in sub. (6) (am) 1. for a district that is located in a city to which sub. (6) (d) applies, except that in no case may expenditures for project costs that are incurred because of an amendment to a project plan that is authorized under this subdivision be made later than 17 years after the district is created. This subdivision does not apply to a tax incremental district that is created after January 1, 2004.
66.1105(4)(h)6. 6. Notwithstanding subd. 1., a project plan shall be considered to have been amended, without compliance with any of the procedures required under subd. 1., if the only change to the project plan is the extension of the period during which expenditures may be made under sub. (6) (am) 1., as authorized under that subdivision by a provision of state law that takes effect after a tax incremental district's project plan is first adopted under par. (f).
66.1105(4)(h)7. 7. If the department of revenue, acting under sub. (5) (dm), makes a determination that any of the conditions listed in sub. (5) (de) apply, a planning commission may amend its project plan to ensure that, with regard to that mixed-use district, the percentage of lands proposed for newly platted residential use does not exceed the percentage specified in sub. (2) (cm), or that at least one of the conditions specified in sub. (2) (f) 3. a. to c. applies, even if such an amendment to a project plan would exceed the number of amendments allowed under subd. 2.
66.1105(4)(h)8. 8. Notwithstanding the limitation in subd. 2., the planning commission in the village of Pleasant Prairie may adopt an amendment to a project plan under subd. 1. to modify the boundaries of tax incremental district number 2 not more than 6 times during the district's existence. A single amendment to a project plan that both adds and subtracts territory shall be counted under this subdivision as one amendment of a project plan.
66.1105(4)(h)9. 9. Notwithstanding the limitation in subd. 2., the planning commission in the city of Middleton may adopt an amendment to a project plan under subd. 1. to modify the boundaries of Tax Incremental District Number 3 not more than 7 times during the district's existence.

66.1105(4e)(a)1. 1. The local legislative body adopts a resolution finding that its project costs incurred, with regard to the tax incremental district, exceed the amount of revenues from all sources that the city expects the district to generate to pay off such project costs during the life of the district.
66.1105(4e)(a)2. 2. The clerk of the local legislative body certifies the resolution and forwards a copy of the certified resolution and a copy of all of the financial data that the local legislative body used in the adoption process under subd. 1. to the department of revenue and the joint review board.

66.1105(4e)(am) (am) To be designated as a severely distressed tax incremental district under par. (a), a district must meet all of the conditions under par. (a) and its value increment in any year must have declined at least 25 percent from the district's highest value increment determined by the department of revenue over the course of the district's life. The joint review board may request that the department of revenue certify that a district meets the decline in value increment percentage described in this paragraph.
66.1105(4e)(b)1.1. Adoption of a resolution under par.
