Commercial Avenue TIF

Designation: 2002    Expiration: 2026

The Commercial Avenue TIF district encompasses similar portions of the South Chicago, South Deering and Calumet Heights communities. Revenue from the TIF is intended to reinforce the retail, service and residential amenities along Commercial Avenue, 95th Street, South Chicago Avenue, and 83rd Street on a planned and coordinated basis with both rehabilitated and new structures. Investments in streetscaping, landscaping and various infrastructure projects are intended to provide a pedestrian-friendly environment that fosters continued private investment, particularly near the area's three Metra stations. The TIF is also designed to support job readiness programs and light industrial uses where appropriate.
