City Council Approves TIF District 3
Proposed RPA Boundary for TIF 3In 2013, the City began to evaluate and explore a number of development incentives that could be  used as potential means for spurring economic development in the City’s downtown area.

Because Geneva is a non-home rule municipality, the types of incentives available are limited by state law. Tax Increment Financing (TIF) was one of a few tools available to boost needed investment.

Following a Joint Review Board meeting, the school district published information and held a public forum on the proposed TIF. The City Council held a Public Hearing to hear a presentation on the Study findings and to receive public comment. We have provided a summary and responses to public statements/questions about the plan.

The TIF 3 plan was approved by the City Council July 25.
