II.              Active Agenda

A.              Shopping Center Grant Program

Mayor Cunningham stated that the purpose of the meeting is to review the TIF and commercial grant programs.  She asked that members of the Village Board provide their perspective on the applications that will be presented.

 

Director Mays stated that the goal of the programs is reinvestment and in the 2017 budget, funding for two programs was approved.  This included funding of $100,000 for the Shopping Center Grant Program which is intended to provide an incentive for facade, signage and landscape improvements and $500,000 intended for reinvestment within the TIF district.  Elgible improvements for the TIF district include facade and landscaping improvements, signage, and maintenance issues.   Mr. Mays stated that submissions to the program are evaluated by staff against the guidelines and with the Village Board's input, staff would prepare a recommendation.  He added that information on this program was sent out to forty brokers and fourteen shopping center representatives.  The Village received two submittals.

 

He continued, stating that the TIF District funding provides funding specific to the corridor along Janes Avenue and 83rd Street.  The same improvements are eligible for funding through the TIF district program.  Mr. Mays stated that an item will be prepared for the Village Board's approval after staff would ensure compliance with the program requirements.
