25th Ward TIF Town Meeting – Where Did Our Property Taxes Go?

January 29, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is notoriously confusing and hidden from public view, yet it impacts everyone in Chicago. TIF funds take property taxes away from our schools, parks, transit and other essential services to be used for Aldermanic and developer-driven projects–with little to no public oversight or input.

Join Pilsen Alliance and Tom Tresser of the CivicLab TIF Illumination Project to shed some light on TIF, how it is used in the 25th, and what we can do about it!


The presenter is Tom Tresser, co-founder of The CivicLab ( and Lead Organizer for the TIF Illumination Project. The TIF Illumination Project has presented at dozens of community forums around the city. All of these presentations are available for purchase and download at
