Aldermen Question Land Use Change for Development Receiving TIF Funds


Some Springfield aldermen are objecting to a big change in plans to rehab a historic downtown building.

 

The project to restore the old Motor Inn garage at 4th and Monroe was originally intended to turn it into residential units.

 

But now the developer wants to use TIF district funds to convert it to commercial and retail space.

 

Several aldermen are raising questions about that switch.

 

Alderman Frank Edwards asked what would stop a developer from requesting TIF money for a residential project… and then trying to use the money to build an adult movie theater.
