Community Development Commission

The Community Development Commission (CDC) was established by the Chicago City Council in 1992 to assume the duties of the former Commercial District Development Commission and the Department of Urban Renewal. The CDC reviews and recommends action on the provision of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) to assist private redevelopment projects; the designation of new TIF districts and Redevelopment Areas; the sale of City-owned property located in TIF districts and Redevlopment Areas; and the appointment of members to Community Conservation Councils. The CDC is comprised of 15 members appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council.
