As the village of Winnetka explores the idea of using TIF, tax increment financing, for downtown renovation projects, the League of Women Voters of Winnetka Northfield Kenilworth will try to help members and the community better understand TIF and how it can be used for the betterment of a community, or misused.
The LWV will sponsor Part II of Understanding TIF on Thursday evening, January 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Washburne School Resource Center.
Tatia Gibbons Laforme and Tanya Anthoffer, both from the Cook County Clerk’s Office will offer a factual slide presentation covering the advantages and disadvantages of using TIF for municipal projects. The community is invited to attend and learn with us.
