Elston/Armstrong TIF

Designation: 2007    Expiration: 2031

The 128-acre Elston/Armstrong TIF was designated to create new job opportunities for area residents by helping to return underutilized commercial and industrial properties to more active and intensive business uses. Specific goals include new streetscape improvements that promote pedestrian vitality and safety, especially along Armstrong Avenue, and roadway and utility upgrades that benefit industrial properties, particularly along Elston Avenue. Funds are also intended for projects that create buffer areas between disparate land uses and for eligible expenses involving property assembly and remediation projects. The TIF supports new single- and multi-family home development on vacant land, where appropriate. Day care, job training and relocation costs are also supported by the TIF.
