Time for an Improvement? Chances are, you’ve already pictured that perfect addition to your home, business or commercial property. Occasionally, however, you put aside your dream, especially when the cost estimates arrive. If only there was a way to reduce the cost of the project. Maybe there is!

Fisher National Bank and the Village of Fisher have created an innovative economic development program called Totally Improved Fisher (TIF). This project offers financial benefits to local property owners who want to make affordable real estate improvements to existing houses, apartment buildings and commercial structures throughout the community.

Consider the possibilities:
      • Family room, garage, or other home addition.
      • Driveway, sidewalks, ramps, and doorways.
      • Grading, tiling, drainage, and landscaping.
      • Demolition, renovations, remodeling.
      • Siding, windows, and weatherization.
      • Decks, patios, sunrooms.
      • A completely new home on a vacant lot.
      • Business expansion or new building facade.

How is this Program Funded?
The Village of Fisher and Fisher National Bank are working together in 2003 to make $100,000 of funds available for economic development through a Community Revolving Loan Fund. The Village and the Bank have each deposited $50,000 in this account for the express purpose of offering low interest loans to Fisher property owners who wish to make real estate improvements anywhere in the community. If your property is located within the Fisher Tax Increment Financing District, additional savings may be realized through real estate tax increment benefits. Cash grants to reduce costs of removing deteriorated structures are also available.
