A proposed property tax incentive class would attract and retain grocery stores in areas of Cook County that lack sufficient access to healthy food.
The Business and Economic Development Committee could take up the proposed ordinance as soon as its Oct. 19 meeting. If approved by the committee, it would still need the approval of the full Cook County Board of Commissioners. The item was referred to the committee during the Sept. 22 board meeting.
