Hickory Kensington AreaHickory Kensington Area: Tax Increment Financing District

In 2012, the Village held numerous public meetings with property owners and nearby residents to discuss the Hickory Kensington Area Plan.  The Plan, which was approved by the Village Board in January 2013, amended the Village's Comprehensive Plan setting forth Goals and Objectives and specific Recommendations and Actions to implement the Plan.  Recommendation #4 was to rezone the area to allow for residential and mixed use development up to five floors.  The Village Board subsequently rezoned the area in June 2013, again after numerous public meetings.  A Tax Increment Financing District was approved by the Village Board on July 21, 2014.  Planning & Community Development Staff is now moving forward with plan implementation.
