Think Urbana lowers the cost of new residential construction. Participants in the program can save 55% off property taxes on their new house in Urbana during the first five years and pay no sales tax on construction materials. 

All of Urbana's subdivisions qualify for Think Urbana savings and offer a variety of neighborhood options.

The Barker Family, University of Illinois employees and long time Urbana residents, share why they chose to build new with Think Urbana. The family used Think Urbana savings to customize a new home to fit their needs, including adding a fully finished basement.
