Intergovernmental Agreement and TIF Funding Would Support Robert Lindblom Math And Science Academy

December 10, 2014


An ordinance was introduced to City Council today to authorize an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Public Building Commission (PBC) and the City of Chicago/Department of Planning and Development (DPD) for use of the necessary TIF funds to acquire parcels needed for a new parking lot, as well as the design and construction costs of the parking lot, at Robert Lindblom Math and Science Academy.

The PBC, on behalf of the DPD, will develop the new parking lot in the 6100 block of South
Winchester Avenue, across the street from the school, located at 6130 S. Wolcott Avenue in the city’s West Englewood community.

The safety of students and staff at CPS schools is the city’s biggest priority and the new lot will provide safe and easily accessible parking for faculty and staff at Lindblom.

The approval of the IGA and use of $2,468,000 in TIF funds from the 63rd/Ashland TIF District will keep the project on track for the targeted opening in the Fall of 2015.
