The City of Hartselle has an active commercial development incentive program to assist with the cost of certain improvements related to development.

This program will reimburse a developer for up to 100% of any required public infrastructure improvements based on new sales tax dollars created by the individual development. The level of reimbursement is based, per development, on a percentage of collected sales tax, less educational earmarks, paid back quarterly over a maximum of five years.

Examples of reimbursable public infrastructure improvements available under this program are: Deceleration Lanes, Turn Lanes, Traffic Signals, Public Roadway Construction, Drainage Improvements, Utility Line Extensions on Public Rights of Way, Dedicated Easements, Utility Availability Fees, and Tap Fees. The City of Hartselle requires a signed agreement with the developer before construction begins on the project in order to take advantage of this program.

For more information on this program and its potential application to your project, please contact the Department of Development at (256) 773-0188.
