Construction has already started for OSF’s new medial prompt care facility at 1 N. Logan Ave., at Main Street and Logan Avenue.

The council will consider approving a $50,000 Western Gateway Tax Increment Financing Redevelopment Incentive Program grant application, Western Gateway Tax Increment Financing redevelopment agreement with Joseph Urbana Investments LLC of Peoria and a budget amendment in the city’s Western Gateway TIF District fund for the project.

The TIF RIP grant program allows for up to $50,000 grants. The projected investment to move a sanitary line is $117,099. The $50,000 grant would be given after completion of the project.

Under the redevelopment agreement, the city also would pay the remaining $67,099 in TIF funds for moving the sanitary line under the proposed building and taking it to Logan Avenue and down the street.

Grants and Planning Manager Logan Cronk had said with cold weather coming, they are on a tight timeline and wanted to pour the foundation before winter.

The vacant .47 acre property, is adjacent to the gas station at Gilbert and Main streets. Proposed construction is a 3,200 square feet medical building and parking. Fifteen jobs are estimated to be created with the medical facility which could open by May 2021.
