Humboldt Park Commercial TIF

Designation: 2001    Expiration: 2025

The Humboldt Park Commercial TIF district is characterized by a mix of commercial, institutional, and residential uses along North Avenue, Division Street and Western Avenue. The purpose of the 138-acre TIF is to support the rehabilitation of existing structures and provide resources for new construction projects where appropriate. Specific goals include the creation of affordable and mixed-income housing, the replacement of select car-oriented businesses along with pedestrian-friendly commercial and mixed-use projects, the implementation of streetscape projects that foster neighborhood identity, and the creation of a restaurant row along Division. Funds are also intended to provide assistance for the creation of off-street parking for use by workers and business patrons, and to improve job training and day care services for residents of the Humboldt Park and West Town communities.
