Should Knoxville/Knox County Give TIF for South Knoxville Project

WATE reported here that Knoxville leaders are poised to give TIF (Tax Increment Financing) for the old Baptist Hospital redevelopment project. Is this a good investment? Wasn’t TIF’s granted for the South Knoxville project that is directly across the river from Neyland Stadium? I want to read some of your thoughts. I am not decided. Sound off! Good or Bad?

    I’m not completely sold on TIFs as a cure all. But in reality, I think whomever takes this project will need a boost from the city and county as an incentive. Right now Baptist is an empty eyesore. It would be nice if it did not remain that way, and I think this is the best way to ensure that outcome.
