Touhy/Western TIF

Designation: 2006    Expiration: 2030

The Touhy/Western TIF is characterized by three mixed-use sub-areas along Touhy, Western and Sacramento avenues in the West Ridge community. Each area possesses a variety of buildings and vacant sites, along with their own unique combination of disinvestment characteristics and blighting influences that the TIF was created to comprehensively reverse. The goals of the approximately 250-acre TIF are to encourage investment in the rehabilitation of existing buildings along each street, to provide public infrastructure improvements involving public right-of-ways, and to assist with the assembly of land for new development projects. Priorities include new and improved residential, commercial and institutional structures. Job training, day care services and relocation assistance are also supported by the TIF.
