More on the Town of Normal-Update

Normal didn’t stop at 2 Tax Increment Finance Districts – More tomorrow

The last report on properties bought – sold – given away – and held by the Town of Normal focus on the Normal Uptown Increment Redevelopment.  Part of that strategy is to pay for the plan using the difference between increased real estate tax revenue and the pre-redevelopment revenue.   In other words, the properties increase in value, property taxes go up, the Town keeps the difference.

My last post showed how properties in the Uptown TIF were used, I’m not sure what they are doing with the properties Normal still owns.  What do they have in mind for these properties?  Were they waiting to finish Uptown before going on another buying spree?  Maybe you should start attending meetings!
