The playground facilities at Jose de Diego Community Academy in West Town would be improved through $1.4 million in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) assistance proposed to City Council today by Mayor Brandon Johnson.

The Chicago Public Schools project at 2301 W. Potomac Ave. would upgrade the facility’s playground equipment and replace asphalt with rubberized surfaces. It would also install drainage infrastructure and a stormwater detention system.

The project would be entirely funded with TIF.
