Why doesn't the Town just add this as levy on taxes?

The Town's hope is to move forward with this project without raising taxes to cover capital costs of the revitalization. 

In order to maximize the generous matching funds, the Town of Biggar aims to meet the fundraising goal of $2.5M from other generous donors. Corporate donations, sponsorships, and foundation grants will be pursued in addition to personal donations.
