FROM THE DESK OF MAYOR MIKE PARKINSON

****FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***March 30, 2022
Granite City Preparing For Approval of Long-Term Homebuyer Incentives

GRANITE CITY, IL (March 30, 2022) – The beginning of a major housing transformation is occurring in a steel manufacturing town just 10 miles northeast of St. Louis.

The third-largest city in Southern Illinois (population 27,549), Granite City is taking an entrepreneurial, homeowner incentives-based approach to revitalizing its housing stock, attracting investment and bolstering pride in home ownership.

Granite, as locals refer to it, is launching a pilot program to incentivize homebuyers and investors to increase home ownership and community pride the historic neighborhoods of Lincoln Place, West Granite and the downtown area.

The city’s recipe for success? Pairing two respected economic development incentives – one that waives sales tax for major home improvements, with another that holds a homeowner’s property tax constant for 10 years, based upon the assessed value prior to when any of the home improvements have occurred. The result is a powerful homeowner-specific incentives package that Granite City officials are already seeing working to bring in median-income families and place home ownership within their reach.

“We have older housing stock that still has its character and charm,” said Mayor Mike Parkinson. “With the vision and investment, these houses can become homes for median-income residents. As we take this approach and incentivize investors to fix up these houses and flip them, we can attract working-class families to come in and buy these properties, knowing that their property taxes will remain constant for a period of 10 years. Our housing affordability provides families the opportunity to buy a quality home and still be able to take their family on vacation and save for retirement.”

“The two-fold approach requires at least ,000 in home improvements to be made for the first incentive – the sales tax waiver on materials and labor – to take effect”, said Granite City Economic Development Director Cathy Hamilton. The second and longer-term incentive, the tax abatement component, promises a new homeowner 10 years of property taxes based upon the assessed amount prior to any improvements taking place.

To the city, this strategy is seen as the ideal answer to the long-term reinvestment, stability and prosperity of Granite.

“We’re seeking to give a young family just starting out a true leg up and a compelling reason to buy a home in our city,” Parkinson said. “Home ownership, education, quality of life and employment base are all interconnected. For Granite to continue attracting employers, a steady population of students in our school system and more, we first have to bring home ownership back to the city and with it a renewed sense of pride in our community. We strongly believe these incentives will do that.”

The City knows the demand for quality and affordable housing is high with its recent sale of a rehabbed house in its One House at a Time program. In early 2021, the city purchased a rundown home and sold it to a rehabber who understood and agreed to the terms of the program. The rehabber completely gutted the home, redid the layout and transformed the house to meet the standards of today’s homebuyer, said Hamilton. “In a neighborhood that usually sells in the ,000 to ,000 range, this house was under contract in three days for over its asking price at 0,100. We took the worst house on the block, a home located just two blocks from the nicest park in Madison County, and one that had been vacant for more than three years,” she added. “It sold to a young family with a deed restriction requiring it to remain owner-occupied for five years,”

The city is currently awaiting approval from the state of Illinois and from Granite City’s impacted taxing entities. Parkinson says state approval is imminent. Granite plans to move forward with the local taxing entities that agree to the proposed 10-year property tax abatement.

Widespread infrastructural improvements are also planned for Granite City, thanks to the city’s receipt of federal assistance from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The city administration is also directing an aggressive clean-up of neighborhoods that includes demolition of many targeted derelict properties, Parkinson said.

GRANITE CITY NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS

Recommanded Reading:          The History of Granite City       |       The Founding of Granite City Industry

In 1801, the Wiggins family and Patrick Haniberry arrived at the north edge of Horseshoe Lake. They named the area Six Mile Settlement, since it was located six miles from St. Louis. In 1802, Dr. Caldwell bought 200 acres of land in what is now West Granite, making him the first known European settler in present-day Granite City. He farmed and practiced medicine. Other settlers at that time included Nathan Carpenter, who built the first horse mill; William Gillham who built cabins on the southern bank of Long Lake and began farming; and the Cummings, Waddles, Hayes, Loftus, Clark, Stallings, Kinder, Squire, Andrew Emmert, Henry Hayes, and Griffins, who settled near Long Lake. In 1812, a blockhouse is constructed in the present-day Worthen School area, to protect women and children during the Indian wars. In 1814, Issac Gillham’s oldest daughter, Margaret, married John Davison, and built their home on land now occupied by the YMCA, library, and Niedringhaus United Methodist Church. In 1817, Calvin Kinder (father of Calvin & George Kinder) arrived with Isaac Braden, Thomas Kinder, and Philip & John Hawks. The area became known as Six Mile Prairie, to distinguish it from Six Mile Township. In 1838 a post office was established in the precinct of Six Mile, with J. Squire as Postmaster.In 1840-1849, floods and malaria plague the area. The flood waters reached the highest level in history, covering all of the American Bottoms and causing massive destruction. Many settlers sold their lands, while others began constructing levees and canals to control the water. In 1849 a cholera epidemic, thought to have been brought by German immigrants, killed 80% of the population.

Beginning around 1850-51, the city of St. Louis and surrounding area experienced an influx of immigrants from Germany. During this period, Frederick and Mary Niedringhaus came to St. Louis, bringing four of their eight children with them, including sons Frederick and William.


National Enameling and Stamping Company, Granite City, IL The Niedringhaus BrothersWilliam F. and Frederick G. Niedringhaus immigrated to St. Louis around 1858, after having trained under their father, a tinner and glazier. The brothers founded the St. Louis Stamping Company in 1866, which had immediate success. Their tinware met the public demand for durable, affordable kitchenware. The brothers developed and patented their famous granite ironware. Seeing limitations to enameled kitchenware, they sought to improve its performance. They came up with a process in which a sheet-iron body was coated in highly vitrified glass. The coating was insoluble, blocking cooking oils and food acid that caused oxidation in iron. The process for production was developed by April 1874, when the first piece was made. The St. Louis Stamping Company began selling worldwide. By 1890, employment at the stamping plant rose to 900 workers. Frederick joined his brother in seeking a new site for the company’s operations, turning their sights to the Six Mile Prairie in Madison County, Illinois. They hired Kinderhook schoolteacher Mark Henson as their land agent. Henson obtained 3,500 acres of land, and the brothers immediately set out to plan and build their new city – not as a conventional “company town,” but a real city where residents would work at their factory and buy their own property and homes to raise their families. They decided on the name “Granite City,” honoring the family’s product. They built their factories and office building, and by 1902 1,200 people were employed there. By the end of the year, the family opened the Granite City Steel plant, that today is part of U. S. Steel. In 1899, the Niedringhaus family’s growing national reputation caused them to rename their stamping company the National Enameling and Stamping Company (NESCO).

Granite City - 1904


Granite City IncorporatedThe city was incorporated in 1896 with a mayor–council form of government. No Niedringhaus family members ever served in the city government, although they would have a hand in the finances of everything from banks to gas companies. The city hired Henry Fossiek as its first policeman. The first brick building erected in Granite City was located at the corner of 19th and State Streets. The building was home to the Julius Rosenberg store, who was a former mayor of the city.

Early Schools in Granite CityIn 1857 the first school is built in Kinder, and was named Kinderhook, as the people though Mr. Kinder had “hooked” the money for his church from school money. It was a two-story building, housing the school on the first floor, and a church on the second.The first Granite City school was built in 1896, and named for Ralph Waldo Emerson. Within ten years, population needs and steady increases in revenue led to three additional schools being construction. In 1899, Washington School was opened. In 1901, two new schools are opened, one near the levee for blacks, and the other for whites on the west side of the tracks.Early Churches in Granite City

A Methodist Church was constructed in 1830 on the Thomas Gillham’s property, with membership consisting of the Gillham’s, Barcos, Kinders, Snyders, Simses, and Davidsons.
