The purpose of the River Edge Redevelopment Program is to revive and redevelop environmentally challenged properties adjacent to rivers in Illinois.
The River Edge Redevelopment Zone Act authorizes DCEO to designate zones in four cities – Aurora, East St. Louis, Elgin and Rockford.
The River Edge Redevelopment Zone (RERZ) Program is designed to achieve its goals through the use of several incentives authorized by State law. Two of these – sales tax exemption and property tax abatement (if offered in the zone) – are administered by the local zone administrators. The others involve tax incentives that may be claimed on your Illinois Income Tax filing.
