EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – City officials voted to expand the local enterprise zone to include a proposed headquarters for Scott CU, which would save the $600 million credit union as much as $800,000 in property taxes over 10 years.

But the enterprise zone would divert 100% of the property tax increase for the first seven years and some will be abated for the following three years, a total of more than $800,000, part of the inducement for the credit union’s $10 million project.

The new three-story building could house as many as 120 employees, and the 13-plus-acre site would allow future construction.

Scott, chartered in 1943 at Scott Air Force Base, is currently headquartered in nearby Collinsville.
