TAX INCREMENT NEGOTIATIONS WITH MESA DEL SOL
The City of Albuquerque retained a team led by Bill Lee (while at ERA) to negotiate a tax sharing agreement for Mesa del Sol, a 13,000 acre development just south of the airport. During the initial development phase, the developer proposed that 75 percent of the tax increment from the new community would accrue to the development. The agreement brokered by Bill ensured that the new community would not have a net negative impact on the city's fiscal position over time. The negotiations improved the city’s revenue position by tens of millions of dollars.
