Neighborhood Revitalization Program
In 2013, the City of South Hutchinson adopted a revised Neighborhood Revitalization Program that includes portions of the community. USD 309 and Hutchinson Community College also participate in the plan via an inter-local agreement. Businesses or residential homes that are improved by $15,000 or 15% of the taxable value of the property receive an annual tax rebate for those improvements. Rebates are on a five (5) year, 100% rebate of applicable City, USD 309 and Hutchinson Community College property taxes. Reno County administers the plan and retains a 5% administration fee as prescribed by state law. Learn more about the Neighborhood Revitalization Program.
