Project Area

Orchard Road Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District

The Village of Montgomery has created a second Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District in January 2014. The Project Area, as depicted in the above map, is generally located by Orchard Road and Aucutt Road. Through the TIF creation process, the Village created a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Eligibility Study (PDF). In addition to the Eligibility Study, the Orchard Road TIF District Redevelopment Plan and Program (PDF) has been created to provide additional information on the district. The Final Eligibility Report from Teska Associates, Inc. outlined recommendations on page 3 for qualifying the proposed TIF area as vacant land subject to chronic flooding and as an "industrial park conservation area".

In accordance with the law, Joint Review Board (JRB) Meetings were held with the taxing districts in the proposed TIF area. The agendas and minutes for those meetings are provided below:
