The Hillsboro City Commission on Monday rejected a Fargo builder’s request for property tax breaks for his proposed multi-family housing development in Hillsboro.

However, City Commission President Terry Sando and city leaders signaled they’re willing to talk face to face with developer Rob Jordahl or his representatives to discuss how the city could offer incentives for the project, which has endured numerous delays.

Sando pointed out the city in May offered a one-year tax break to Jordahl and an additional two-year, tax-free window for his rental units that are built but not occupied by tenants in Hillsboro.

In addition, commissioners would consider waiving $7,000 in building permit fees for Jordahl’s planned 32-unit housing development west of Second Street North and north of Kiwanis Senior Housing – and look at other incentives – if the builder visits Hillsboro, Sando said.
