Regional Transportation Authority
However, at the request of Yorktown, the Village Board approved an additional 1% sales tax for the Business Improvement District which only includes the new development on the site of the old Montgomery Wards store, some of the out lots along Highland and Butterfield and a portion of the southwest wing of Yorktown. The money will used to offset some of the development costs associated with The Shops on Butterfield project at Yorktown. The rest of the mall as well as the three anchor stores, Carson’s, Von Maur and Penney’s, are not within the District and therefore are not subject to the tax.
Restaurants that offer sit down dining are also subject to an additional 2% local Places for Eating Tax.
By shopping in Lombard, you help support local business and keep property taxes low.
