Water Street TIF District

A Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Feasibility Study for the Water Street Area was conducted in 2002 which showed the area was qualified for eligible expenditures, including public improvements that could be funded under the TIF Act. A Water Street Vision Statement (PDF) was drafted and a Joint Review Board was established to create the proposed Water Street Tax Increment (TIF) District.

The Water Street TIF District was approved in 2007. The ordinances creating the district are listed below:

On February 17, 2015 the Naperville City Council passed Ordinance 15-026 extending the Water Street TIF District term by a period of seven years, providing for a total term of 30 years.

Joint Review Board

The Illinois State Statute requires each TIF District to conduct a meeting of the Joint Review Board (JRB) to review and approve each annual fiscal year report submitted. Due to a change in the city’s fiscal year to a calendar year cycle, the next meeting of the JRB will be held in 2017 to review the FY16 reporting information (covering the period from May 1, 2015 – December 31, 2016). Copies of meeting summaries from the last two years are provided below.

The JRB will convene on July 27, 2017 at 3:30 pm in the NEU Meeting Room located on the lower level of the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle Street.  This meeting will focus on the reporting period from May 1, 2015 – December 31, 2016.  Report and Audit information will be posted on this page once available.  A copy of the agenda can be found here.
