A Chattanooga Police officer has to break up a conversation between a resident and a developer of Black Creek Mountain on Tuesday.
That's after the Chattanooga City Council passed the County's first ever Tax Increment Financing or TIF project.
The project is a road that leads to the top of Aetna Mountain.
"If this opens the door for TIFs good. Chattanooga's moving it's a progressive action. It's going to save having to raise takes in the future," says Chattanooga City Councilman Jack Benson.
But, not all council members agree that TIF's are a good thing for the city.
In this case, even one home built on the top of Aetna Mountain will require the city to pay for Police and Fire services.
"it's all of those things the city will not be until the TIF is paid off, will not be paying for," explains Councilwoman Deborah Scott.
It's estimated the TIF will take approximately 13 years to pay off through property taxes.
"We in fact hope the property taxes go up as a result of our development because that's what will pay back the bonds that are being purchased by the developer," says Black Creek Mountain Developer Doug Stein.
But some residents aren't so happy about the idea of a road up the mountain.
"I fear the city just gave the developers a legal way of stealing our land out from underneath us," says resident and business owner Jeff Perlaky.
A battle they've been fighting for years.
