Western Avenue (North) TIF

Designation: 2000    Expiration: 2024

The Western Avenue North TIF covers 227 acres of mixed land uses along major arterial streets within the Lincoln Square and Uptown communities. Many area buildings suffer from age and obsolescence and no longer contribute to the viability of area streets. The TIF is intended to encourage their redevelopment or rehabilitation for various uses that serve community needs. Priorities also include the development of new senior housing, the reinforcement of existing retail nodes with pedestrian-friendly improvements, the creation of infill development at select locations, and the expansion of off-street parking. Funds also support property assembly efforts, relocation costs, improvements to area open spaces, job training and day care services.
