Crystal Lake Vulcan Lakes/Route 14 TIF Delayed Until Dec. 6th

With both Crystal Lake school districts and the park district opposing the Vulcan Lakes/Route 14 TIF, the Crystal Lake City Council approved a pre-meeting agreement to postpone the vote until December 6th.

With the seven council members were unanimous in their approval of the Main Street TIF–next to the successful Downtown TIF–one wonders if there are some shakier votes on Vulcan Lakes, which will take a 3/5 majority, rather than a simple majority.

My guess is that a glossy promotional piece will be mailed to all Crystal Lake residents showing the city’s vision of the re-developed area.

Anyone want to wager that it will not be paid for with public money that will later be reimbursed from the TIF district bond proceeds?
