For more extensive commercial renovation and redevelopment assistance, Huntley's TIF Policy was developed to assist in understanding the TIF’s benefits.  Inquiries regarding redevelopment and land assemblage within this area may be directed to Economic Development staff.  The Downtown TIF Plan provides details about the area and use of the TIF.  As an additional planning resource, please review the Downtown Revitalization Plan.
