Narrative
Wal-Mart received a $647,000 enterprise zone tax break for this Supercenter. The city provided $300,000 in infrastructure improvement around the site through a state grant. The city is also making $12 million in road improvements throughout the area through a sales-tax increment financing district. Since the district also includes many neighboring developments and local officials could not estimate how much of the improvements went to Wal-Mart's access roads, we did not include TIF funds in the subsidy calculation.
