A Springfield business owner is now racing the clock to take advantage of a long-dormant TIF district to boost development on the city’s northwest corner.
Wendy Chronister of the Qik ‘n’ EZ stores hopes to build a new gas station and convenience store… and other businesss… at Jefferson and Veterans. The TIF was set up seven years ago but was never utilized, and has almost no money in it. Chronister wants a commitment that future revenues will be used to further develop that area.
The project is taking on additional urgency in hopes of getting construction underway during the warm spring and summer months.
