TIF Approved For North Lawndale Athletic Field

November 26, 2013


Tax Increment Financing (TIF) assistance in the amount of $2 million will reimburse the Chicago Park District for the recently completed construction of a running track and artificial turf field at Douglas Park, 1401 S. Sacramento Ave. in North Lawndale. 

Used by students of nearby Collins Academy High School and community residents, the track and field are located in the northwest corner of the 218-acre park, which is named for former U.S. Senator Stephen A. Douglas. The balance of the $2.06 million project was financed by the Park District.
