Pursuant to Section § 5/11-74.4-4.2 of the Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment Act, 65 ILCS § 5/11-74.4-1 et seq. (the “Act”), the City of Jacksonville is required to establish an Interested Parties registry (“Registry” or “Registries”) for each Tax Increment Financing (“TIF”) redevelopment project area created pursuant to the Act (a “Redevelopment Project Area”) whether existing as of the date of this notice or hereafter established. On November 12, 2002, the City adopted a resolution authorizing the establishment of a Registry and establishing registration rules for such Registry. The purpose of this notice is to inform Interested Parties of the Registry and registration rules for the Registry and to invite Interested Parties (as defined below) to register in the Registry for the Downtown Redevelopment Project Area currently being considered by the City.
Any organization active within the City of Jacksonville and/or any residents of the City (an “Interested Party”) is entitled to register in the Registry for any redevelopment project area. Organizations include, but are not limited to, businesses, business organizations, civic groups, not-for-profit corporations and community organizations.
An organization seeking to register as an Interested Party with respect to a redevelopment project area must complete and submit a Registration Application Form, which may be obtained from the office of the City Clerk. An individual must submit a copy of a current driver’s license, lease, voter registration card, utility bill, financial statement, or such other evidence as may be acceptable to the Clerk to establish the individual’s current residency in the City.
All individuals and organizations whose Registration Application Form and supporting documentation comply with the registration rules and who submit such documentation to the City Clerk will be registered in the Registry within ten (10) business days of the Clerk’s receipt of all such documents. If the Clerk determines that an applicant’s Registration Application Form and/or supporting documentation are incomplete or does not comply with the registration rules adopted by the City, the Clerk will give written notice to the applicant specifying the defects. The applicant will be entitled to correct any defects and resubmit a new Registration Application Form and supporting documentation.
Upon registration, Interested Parties shall be entitled to receive all notices required under the Act, including how to obtain information concerning the Redevelopment Project Area. The City of Jacksonville reserves the right to charge recipients for the cost of copies and postage/delivery charges for requested documents.
An Interested Party’s registration will remain effective for a period of three (3) years. Rules for the renewal or amendment of an Interested Party’s registration are included with the Registration Application Form that may be obtained as described herein. The Registry will be available for public inspection at the office of the Clerk during the City’s normal business hours. The Registry will include the name, address, and telephone number of each Interested Person; and for organizations, the name and phone number of a designated contact person.
