Neighborhood Revitalization Program

Andover 2019-2021 Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP)neighborhood revitalization program

 All local taxing entities (City of Andover, Butler County, Butler Community College and USD 385) have agreed to participate in the rebate program.  The final inter-local agreement was signed the week of December 10, 2018.  In accordance with state statute, the agreements must now be approved by the Attorney General and the program will not go into effect until that approval is received.  Mid-April is the anticipated timeframe, but it may be later.  Please note this means there will be a gap between the end of the current program and the beginning of the 2019-2021 Program, when no properties will be eligible for NRP. 

 Once the program is in effect, it will consist of the following details: 

  • Includes primarily commercial properties and the inner core of the City. An interactive map is to the left on this screen. The city limits are noted with redlines and the color shaded areas are qualifying properties.
  • Can benefit existing homeowners. 
  • The program will be effective for homes / businesses that have building permits pulled after Attorney General approval in 2019 and before December 31, 2021. 
  • To be eligible, residential projects must be at least $25,000 based upon building permit value. Commercial projects must be at least $50,000 based upon building permit value.
  • The 95% rebate of local taxes will occur for 5 years for rehabilitation or improvement projects. A 45% rebate will last five years for new residential or commercial projects. Thanks to the support of the following local taxing jurisdictions, the rebate will apply to all local property taxes levied by the City of Andover, Butler County, Butler Community College and USD 385.
