Work Force -
Parkers Prairie boasts a work ethic that is
second to none, and a skilled labor force drawn
from neighboring communities. While agriculture
is still a big part of who we are, there are
many skilled workers in technology and
manufacturing, and businesses already in place
providing goods and services to the world.
Cost of Living -
With a smaller community comes a lower median
average cost of homes and property, not to
mention a lower tax base. Find out for yourself
how affordable life and business can be here.
Community Support -
Not only will you experience financial support
from local lenders, but you'll also feel the
support and enthusiasm of the people here. We
want you to succeed, grow, and expand because it
benefits all of us.
Police and Fire -
This community of about one thousand people has
its own police department in addition to a
well-trained volunteer fire and rescue
department that has been recognized as one of
the top departments nation wide among
communities this size.
Outdoor fun is abundant here. Escape to any of
the hundreds of lakes within a half-hour radius
of town. Wrestle with a walleye, swim, or
water-ski. Enjoy great hunting while in season.
Better yet, take a friend and hike up nearby
Inspiration Peak--Minnesota's highest point--a
glacial mountain formed thousands of years ago.
Do you like winter fun? Thousands of miles of
snowmobile trails are traveled by sportsmen and
women each year.
What is TIF
Tax Increment Financing (TIF)?
TIF is a tool to use future gains in
taxes to finance current improvements
(which theoretically will create the
conditions for those future gains). When
public projects such as a road, school,
or infrastructure improvement are
carried out, there is often an increase
in the value of surrounding real estate,
and perhaps new investment (new or
rehabilitated buildings, for example).
This increased site value and investment
sometimes generates increased tax
revenues. The increased tax revenues are
the “tax increment.” Tax Increment
Financing dedicates tax increments
within a certain defined district to
finance debt issued to pay for the
project. TIF is designed to channel
funding toward improvements in
distressed or underdeveloped areas where
development might not otherwise occur.
TIF creates funding for “public”
projects that may otherwise be
unaffordable to localities, by borrowing
against future property tax revenues.
