Normal Looks At Tax Levy Increase, Approves Parks Master Plan

Nov 2, 2015

The Town of Normal is preparing a property tax levy, which will be brought before council members next month.

If the current proposal is approved, the tax levy will increase. However, City Manager Mark Peterson says that change won't make tax bills higher.

The council also approved a master plan for Parks and Recreation, which prioritizes projects for the department. The plan outlines multiple projects, which include an increase in park land, improvements to Constitution Trail, and a multi-sport complex. City Manager Mark Peterson says the town is looking at multiple ways to fund the multi-sport complex, which could see money from a tax increase taking effect in January.

Peterson says the master plan sets their priorities for the future.
