Just the Facts

Posted on: November 23, 2016

Rumor: Warrenville voters are open to tax increase to develop park on former Musselman property

Fact: this rumor is false.

The rumor began after the November 8, 2016, citizen initiated referendum question: “Should the City of Warrenville develop the Civic Center Redevelopment Site #1 (also known as the Musselman property) as a park?

The referendum question did not mention tax increases nor how much it would cost to build a park instead of selling the property for private residential development as planned.

The City Council remains committed to developing this property with homes. The estimated property tax revenue generated from privately-owned single-family homes on the site would produce $315,000 annually, which will be used to pay back the City’s investment for the purchase and cleanup of the property.
