Irving Park/Elston TIF

Designation: 2009    Terminated: 2019

The purpose of the 66-acre Irving/Elston TIF is to facilitate the development and improvement of the district’s commercial, mixed-use and community facilities. The district is also intended to the improve the area’s physical environment and infrastructure, including existing sidewalks, street furniture, pedestrian crosswalks, and other pedestrian-friendly amenities. Specific priorities include new street lighting and streetscape improvements along Irving Park Road and Elston Avenue, physical buffers between industrial, commercial and residential areas, and additional traffic signals, signage, and traffic calming mechanisms where necessary. Improvements that promote the use of public transportation and transit-related facilities are also prioritized. The Irving/Elston plan seeks to maintain and enhance most of the district’s existing land uses, with the exception of industrial uses that should be replaced over time.
