According to the state’s TIF law, the township must wait at least three weeks after that public hearing to adopt a resolution or ordinance creating a Hamilton Crossings TIF district.

Hamilton Crossings is planned on both sides of Krocks Road, between Hamilton Boulevard and Route 222 in Lower Macungie.

 The developers initially hoped construction could begin by the end of this summer and that Hamilton Crossings would be completed by the autumn of 2014.

The shopping center’s owners would have paid all of its property taxes, but 50 percent of that tax money would have been transferred to the Industrial Development Authority to pay debt on bonds that are used to finance infrastructure improvements.
