Existing retailers who got no special treatment from the city say it is unfair for them to have to compete against newcomers who get tax breaks and low-interest loans. Development officials say TIF is a valuable tool for them to attract new businesses and promote the city's growth. They point to such projects as the Sandhills Convention Center, the Budweiser distribution center, the new Wal-Mart distribution center and the proposed new Menards in North Platte as proof of the TIF plan's value.
