THE FORUM AT Grandview shopping center in Madison has “more than lived up to expectations,” City Attorney John Hedglin said, with a fresh crop of retail businesses paying dividends for both the developer and the city.
Case in point: In 2011, the city issued $850,000 in tax-increment financing (TIF) bonds to fund some of the last infrastructure built at the site on Grandview Boulevard, which now includes Ulta, Michael’s and PetCo.
