Redevelopment Map and Hard hat

The Village of Wauconda has approved its first Tax Increment Financing District (TIF). The District is to be known a “Redevelopment Project Area 1: Triangle Area,” which includes approximately 220 acres of land located south of Route 176 and on either side of Route 12. The TIF District is an area of the Village planned for retail and mixed use development (See multi-colored land use map below). The District has been identified as an area in need of assistance to help attract development and redevelopment to the area, ultimately benefitting of all taxing districts and the community as a whole.

What is a TIF?

Tax Increment Financing (TIF)is a statutory Economic Development Program that municipalities can enact to facilitate the continued development or redevelopment of a specific geographic area. The program works by capturing increases in property tax revenues (called the increment) over existing levels caused by new development. TIF revenues can be spent only on certain public realm investments. ATIF over time TIF District does NOT add any new tax rates or levies. Existing baseline tax revenues continue to go to the taxing districts. Click here for an Historic Overview of TIF related events.
