How do you propose to replace property tax revenue for CPS and other taxing bodies that is lost to TIF development?

Neighborhood Development

I think we need to be very careful about creating new TIF districts, and typically should be retiring TIFs on their termination date. In this time of budgetary crisis, we need to prioritize CPS over other spending. Above, I discussed potential new or increased revenue streams that can be used to fund CPS. However, we also need TIF reform to make sure that property taxes aren’t being misused or abused at the expense of our students.
