Why is the county planning to offer incentives?

Kalahari will generate millions of dollars in annual revenue and bring hundreds of new jobs to Spotsylvania.  A company like Kalahari is highly prized as a corporate citizen, making recruitment very competitive and incentives often necessary.  The county has used incentives in the past to attract other highly desirable companies to Spotsylvania and has a proven track record of providing performance-based incentives to businesses that expand employment opportunities and the tax base.  Examples are HDT Global, LIDL, the VA Hospital, the Knife Center, and the Spotsylvania Towne Centre Village.
