Of the three TIF districts in Joliet now, the downtown district is the only one that has been very active so far.
A Cass Street TIF district created in 2011 to aid redevelopment of the old Prayer Tower Ministries Church of God in Christ into a retail strip center has never been used for another project.
The TIF district around Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center, Jones said, is too new to have generated any funds for development.
