The legal requirement to allow PILOT, or Payment In Lieu Of Taxes, في “ميريديا في كركديه بارك” development on West Westfield Avenue for their 213-unit residential development is in the form of Ordinance 2493. This directive will authorize Roselle Park’s governing body to enter into a PILOT agreementon behalf of the borough’s residentswith Meridia on Westfield Urban Renewal, الكركدى بارك, LLC. This will be for the five (5) properties along West Westfield Avenue that include the former restaurant Domani’s, ليموزين دي جي, and SESSCO.

في ديسمبر من 2015, the first step to having the properties developed on Route 28 (ويستفيلد الجادة) was taken when the Municipal Land Use Board (MLUB) designated the lots as an Area In Need Of Redevelopment. الآن, 18 بعد شهور عديدة, after being approved by both the MLUB and council to develop, شركة عقارية Capodagli (للحزب الشيوعى الصينى) – the parent company of Meridiahas demolished the structures and is applying for PILOT.

PILOT هو البرنامج الذي يستخدم كحافز للمطورين للبناء على خصائص في البلديات التي تم التخلي عنها, شاغر, أو غير المستخدمة. للمطورين استخدام PILOT لدفع البلدية أقل من ولاها أن تدفع إذا كانت تؤدي الضرائب على الممتلكات. قد تتلقى البلديات أقل في الضرائب ولكن الحكومة البلدية يتلقى أكثر عن طريق مئوية منذ 95% من PILOT يذهب إلى المدينة بدلا من الاضطرار 30% إلى 33% الضرائب الذهاب الى البلدية. In a PILOT scenario, a school district does not get any of the PILOT payments. Criticism of the program is that for an apartment or residential development, school children might attend local public schools but the developer would not pay for any increase in student population through school taxes. At a presentation for PILOT held in April, Michael Hanley of NW Financial Group stated that school districts do get taxes from the land portion of property taxes. It is only the improvement partwhich is covered by PILOTthat does not go to schools.

Joseph Baumann from the law firm of McManimon, أسكتلندا & باومان, LLC – the special council appointed by the governing body to assist with the logistics of the project and PILOTconfirmed that the land portion of property taxes are still paid and only the improvement portion has PILOT applied to it. It is this portion that will not have any taxes going to schools but, according to the presentation, between 50% and 55% of the land portion taxes will still go to schools. PILOT will apply any taxes paid by the municipality from the land portion as a credit to the PILOT payments.

أما بالنسبة PILOT, it will be based on the annual revenue of the development and will be for 30 سنوات. The complex is scheduled to be completed by July of 2019. The project is designated as mix-use with the first floor of the development being for as yet unnamed commercial use.

Below is a breakdown of the percentage to be paid as PILOT for the span of the agreement:

YEARS
RATE
PHASE-OUT
1 - 5
10.5%
6 - 10
10.5%
أو 20% of ordinary taxation
11-15
13%
أو 40% of ordinary taxation
16 - 20
13%
أو 60% of ordinary taxation
21 - 30
13%
أو 80% of ordinary taxation

The phase-out alternative method means that the developer will pay either a percentage of the revenue of a percentage of taxes – whichever is greater.
