Falls of Neuse small area plan
Amendment Two increased the tax rate in the Hillsborough Street Municipal Service District from the
proposed revenue-neutral rate of 9.44 cents to the FY2016 rate of 15 cents. This tax rate change
increased the estimated FY2017 tax revenue by $224,855 from $387,045 to $611,900. Council allocated
the additional revenue from this change to the Hillsborough Street Community Service Corporation for
increased marking and promotions, increased safety lighting, additional clean and safety ambassador
positions, increased retail attraction activities, and community engagement in conflict resolution.
On behalf of all City staff who contributed to the FY2017 budget process, we greatly appreciate your
questions, feedback, and careful deliberation of these policy and resource allocation decisions. City staff
is already working to implement the policies and programs contained within the Adopted Budget.
