The city of Carbondale is exploring the option of adding a residential TIF district to turn rental houses into owner occupied homes.

Cambria's village board has approved a controversial tax increment financing district - despite vocal opposition from numerous groups.

The district, known as a TIF, would freeze property tax rates for homes throughout the community.

The Cambria Village Board will vote Thursday on a proposed residential Tax Increment Financing District.

Village President Steve Gottschalk says this will help Cambria improve its infrastructure, streets, water and sewer lines.
