Two Chicago-area municipal consultants and Roosevelt University’s School of Business Administration will host a tax-increment financing workshop May 27 to bring together community development leaders with investor and investment banking participants.

“Our hope is to keep the TIF sector momentum going, and bring about a new round of state policy and local financing,” said co-sponsor Peter Fugiel. “From the years I have just spent in real estate research, I would say to you, now is the time for all localities to scope out what may happen to them, as the realty markets shake out.”

Fugiel, formerly a bond analyst at Nuveen Investments, and Don Ohannes, formerly investment director at Allstate Insurance, recently started a public finance and development consulting and training business based in Chicago.

The workshop is May 27 at Roosevelt’s downtown Chicago campus. For more information, contact Fugiel at 773-218-7422 or
