East Penn School District to revisit support for Hamilton Crossings TIF

Ordinance on Monday's agenda would rescind district support for funding plan.

EMMAUS, Pa. - It looks like a controversial plan to fund a proposed shopping center in Lehigh County may have hit yet another hurdle.

Developers want to use a Tax Increment Financing plan -- also called a TIF -- to pay for the Hamilton Crossings Shopping Center in Lower Macungie Township.

The East Penn School District initially backed the TIF, but according to the school board's meeting agenda, members will vote Monday night on a resolution that would rescind the district's participation in the TIF.

The Lehigh County commissioners have already voted down the plan but the township supports it.
