    Winfield 34 Board Considers Village of Winfield's Proposed TIF 2 Development

    On April 29, 2020, the Village of Winfield proposed splitting the current Winfield TIF into two portions, TIF 1 which would operate through 2027 and TIF 2 which would be a new TIF and operate potentially through 2043. Since this time, the Winfield School District 34 has sought to learn more about the proposed TIF and how it would impact the financial future of Winfield School District 34 and the taxpayers of Winfield 34. 

    While the Winfield School District 34 has yet to take a formal position on the TIF, many important conversations have been had. Here are some of the resources the Board has used to learn more about the TIF 2 proposal:

    Impacts of Potential School District Consolidation

    Frequently the legislature in Springfield proposes school district consolidation bills. This has been studied multiple times by Winfield School District 34 and neighboring districts Benjamin 25, West Chicago 33, and CHSD 94. Studies have taken place in the 80's, 90's, and the most recent study was completed in 2009. Here is the executive summary and full study that was completed by the outside firm. Each study has resulted with the recommendation not to consolidate.

    For the Winfield 34 community, consolidation would mean:

    • Increased property taxes (approximately 25%)
    • Increased class sizes
    • Increased transportation costs
    • Loss of local control

    This presentation goes more in depth regarding the potential impacts of school consolidation on Winfield 34.
