- a demolition permit has been issued for the existing buildings;
- preservationists would still like to see the buildings saved;
- the City has reduced the TIF amount from $30 million to $14 million;
- the Clarendon Park fieldhouse will not be receiving any up-front funds from the TIF due to the city's reduction of the TIF grant;
- money to restore the fieldhouse will come from money produced by taxes created by whatever gets built on the site (presumably, but not assuredly, the high-rise that JDL proposes)*;
- Abby Sullivan at the 46th Ward aldermanic office says, "We're also looking into possible funding by the state or the infrastructure trust fund" to restore the fieldhouse"; and
- there will be a meeting of the Zoning & Development Committee to review the latest plans on Monday night.
* The site has not generated any taxes since at least 1957, due to the non-profit status and charity work done by the owners/sellers, the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart.
