Reminder-TIF Reform Hearing Tonight – 6pm!!

Posted: July 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

Tonight at 6pm the Mayor’s task force on Tax Increment Financing (TIF) reform will hold a public hearing to seek community input on bringing transparency, accountability and efficiency to the TIF system. As many of you may know, during his first week in office, Mayor Emanuel assembled a task force charged with creating accountability systems for the TIF program, to ensure that TIF investments generate returns for taxpayers in the form of new job creation and economic development. The Mayor’s task force on TIF reform brings together small business leaders, financial experts, elected officials, and urban policy leaders from think tanks, academia, and foundations.

This meeting will be held tonight at 6pm at the Chicago Military Academy at Bronzeville Gymnasium located at 3519 South Giles Ave. Everyone homeowner, business owner and organization should attend.

To submit an idea to the TIF task force you can visit www.cityofchicago.org/TIFTaskforce.
