Columbia College Moving Out of Main Street TIF District

When the Tax Increment Financing District was being discussed for Main Street running from the railroad yard north of East Crystal Lake Avenue down to the classic car shop, one of the selling points was Columbia College’s presence in the old Oak Manufacturing building.

Wednesday night, Columbia College spokesman Melissa Stutts appeared before Crystal Lake’s Planning and Zoning Commissioners with a representative of Talon Development. Talon’s property is located north of Route 176 on Route 31.

“Are you going to move (the entire operation)?” one commissioner asked.

“We would move the entire college to the Route 31 (facility),” Stutts replied.
