    On Wednesday, my colleagues and I voted unanimously to approve the creation of a Transit TIF (Tax Increment Financing) district. The Transit TIF is expected to generate over $622M over the course of 35 years, providing the required local funding match needed to take advantage of a $1.1B Federal transit grant.
