The Redevelopment Plan and Redevelopment Project objectives are to reduce or eliminate blighting conditions, to enhance the real estate and sales tax base of the City and other affected taxing districts by encouraging private investment in commercial, industrial, and recreational development within the Redevelopment Project Area, and to preserve and enhance the value of properties therein, all in accordance with the provisions of the “Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment Act,” effective January 10, 1977, as amended. The City may issue obligations to finance project costs in accordance with the Redevelopment Plan and Redevelopment Project, which obligations may also be secured by the special tax allocation fund and other available funds, if any, as now or hereafter permitted by law, and which also may be secured by the full faith and credit of the municipality.

At the hearing, there will be a discussion of the Redevelopment Plan and Redevelopment Project, designation of the Redevelopment Project Area, and the adoption of tax increment allocation financing for the Redevelopment Project Area. The proposed Redevelopment Plan and Redevelopment Project is on file and available for public inspection at the office of the City Clerk at 17 W. Main Street, Danville, Illinois 61832.

Pursuant to the Redevelopment Plan and Redevelopment Project the City proposes to alleviate blighting conditions in the Redevelopment Project Area and to enhance the tax base of the City of Danville and the taxing districts having taxable property within the Redevelopment Project Area by utilizing tax increment financing to fund various eligible redevelopment project costs to stimulate private investment within the Redevelopment Project Area. These eligible redevelopment project costs may include, but are not limited to, studies, surveys, marketing costs, professional fees, administrative costs, infrastructure, land and real estate acquisition and assembly, and related disposition, rehabilitation, remodeling and repair costs, taxing district capital costs and improvements, interest costs, private interest subsidies, and public improvements and facilities, and other redevelopment project costs as set out in the Redevelopment Plan. To achieve this objective, the Redevelopment Plan proposes to provide assistance for residential, business, commercial and light industrial development and redevelopment, and related and appurtenant development and redevelopment.

Tax increment financing is a public financing tool that does not raise property taxes but is used to assist economic development projects by capturing the projected increase in the property tax revenue stream to be created by the increase of the assessed value of the development or development area and investing those funds in improvements associated with the project.

Prior to the date of the hearing, any person, including each taxing district having property in the Redevelopment Project Area and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, may submit written comments to the City of Danville concerning the subject matter of the hearing. Written comments should be submitted to the attention of Christopher J. Milliken, Planning & Urban Services Manager, 1155 E Voorhees Street, in Danville, Illinois 61832. [tel: (217) 431-2321].

At the hearing all interested persons, including affected taxing districts, may file written objections with the City Clerk, and shall have the opportunity to be heard orally with respect to any issues regarding the proposed Redevelopment Plan and Redevelopment Project, designation of the Redevelopment Project Area, and adoption of tax increment allocation financing therefor.

The hearing may be adjourned by the City Council without further notice other than a motion to be entered upon the minutes of the hearing fixing the time and place of the subsequent hearing.

Questions related to the eligibility and qualification of the Redevelopment Project Area and other matters related to the Redevelopment Plan and Redevelopment Project can be sent to: Christopher J. Milliken, Planning & Urban Services Manager 1155 E Voorhees Street, in Danville, Illinois 61832. [tel: (217) 431-2321].

Also, the City of Danville, Illinois, hereby requests proposals from developers and redevelopers in connection with the Redevelopment Project Area.
