CHICAGO — The Chicago Infrastructure Trust may move next month to solicit private market interest in funding energy efficient upgrades to city facilities and public schools in what would mark the not-for-profit's first project financing on behalf of the city.

The city's goal — if the trust approves — is to raise financing on an initial tranche of projects of at least $50 million and possibly up to $100 million, said Chicago's chief financial officer Lois Scott. The city hopes the deal can close by summer when work would begin.
