What a TIF District Could Be

Many Chicagoans are disappointed with what TIF has – or hasn't – wrought. But, John Paul Jones, who has been a frequent critic himself, says the tactic could be great for neighborhood development. He's the former community outreach director for the now defunct Neighborhood Capital Budget Group. It was a coalition of community groups that long advocated for neighborhood development. Now he's a community organizer in Chicago's Roseland neighborhood.
