Glen Ellyn residents on apartments excluded from TIF: 'It's worse than a war zone'
GLEN ELLYN – Although many residents of two low-income apartment complexes in Glen Ellyn asked to be removed from a proposed TIF district, some neighbors are concerned about what the removal could mean for an area they say is falling apart.
"I live right there. It is not a safe environment for the World Relief children. It's not a safe environment for my children or any of our neighbors," Glen Ellyn resident Renie Atchison said. "It has directly impacted my family. It's a slum. It needs to be addressed."
Atchison voiced her concerns at a public hearing held Sept. 9 by the village as part of the due process to establish a TIF district along Roosevelt Road.
