The Charlotte City Councils economic development committee voted unanimously Thursday in support of a request by developers of a planned Steele Creek outlet mall for $5.1 million.
The money would be used to reimburse the developers Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Simon Property Group and Childress Klein Properties for road improvements around the site.
They are asked to be reimbursed for 45 percent of the new property taxes they are expected to pay over a 10-year period.
The full City Council will consider the request Monday. The county would pay two-thirds and the city would pay one-third of the $5.1 million.
The 90-retailer project is scheduled to open in spring 2014.
