TIF Proposed for Winnemac Park Improvements

March 15, 2023


Winnemac Park in Lincoln Square would receive $2M in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) support for athletic field improvements under a proposal introduced to City Council today by Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot.

The planned improvements at 5001 N. Leavitt St. include new artificial turf and drainage systems for the park’s baseball field, new drainage for its soccer field, upgrades to its tennis courts, a new pickleball space, new pathway pavers, and other enhancements.

The City’s TIF program uses new property tax growth within designated districts to support public and private improvements within their boundaries.
