This 7-member Commission is empowered by State Statutes and governed by Village ordinance and By-laws to 1) Prepare redevelopment plans and carry out the Village’s redevelopment projects and 2) enter into contracts to implement redevelopment. Usually meets once a month afternoons. The CDA’s duties are subject to review and approval by the Village Board and can:
- Acquire any real or personal Property by purchase, lease, eminent domain or otherwise.
- Borrow money and issue bonds, execute notes, debentures and other forms of indebtedness.
- Employ personnel.
- Expend funds.
This vision will be achieved primarily through green-field development, but blight removal and brown-field remediation will be an important part of the effort. Consideration will be given to promoting infill housing through tax and impact fee waivers, and other similar incentives. Aesthetics, mixed use, and green-space development will be guided by the Village’s Year 2035 Master Plan for Land Use and Transportation and the Lakota 2006 Interstate 94 Area Plan.
This vision would restrict and reduce the ratio of administrative and public service expense to our tax base and ease the long-term tax burden of its residents while improving services, infrastructure, and quality of life. Continuous review and research will further refine its implementation.
