Village Budget

Glenview is a home-rule municipality and creates a formal budget on an annual basis. The budget projects the financial operating plan for expected revenues and allocates resources to particular expenditures. Resources from many sources are allocated for services and programs. The budget is typically adopted in December for the following fiscal calendar year, following a series of public budget workshops and a Capital Improvement Program workshop for resident input.

Tax Increment Finance (TIF) Districts in Glenview

A TIF District is an economic redevelopment tool used by communities to spur investment in a particular geographical area. First, a boundary is set around a particular group of properties, then within those boundaries the property tax is "frozen," with specific levels of revenues funneled to local entities (schools, parks) for no more than 23 years. As the area begins to redevelop, property values will rise in concurrence with property taxes. Any increment over the initial "frozen" valuation is retained by the Village government (instead of being paid out to those schools, parks, and so on), and these funds are used to pay redevelopment costs.

The Village had two TIF districts that are no longer active. Read below to learn more.

The Glen TIF

The Glen TIF was established to redevelop the United States Naval Air Station into the Glen Town Center that is known and loved today. To read more, see the page on the Naval Air Station in Glenview.


Waukegan/Golf TIF

The Waukegan Road / Golf Road Tax Increment Financing District (TIF) formally concluded on Dec. 31, 2023, marking the completion of a successful redevelopment of the former Avon site. The project brought significant improvements to this intersection, including the development of The Reserve, a 238-unit luxury apartment complex, and the Glen Gate Shopping Center (approximately 103,000 square feet of retail that includes a 75,000 square foot Mariano’s as the anchor tenant). 

It was planned to close this TIF within 10 years -- no later than the end of 2023 -- following the last debt service payment due Dec. 1, 2023. The closure of the TIF in 2023 occurred significantly earlier than the allowed 23 years for a TIF to remain open by statute.
