Below is the response an Uptown Update reader got from Ald. Shiller's staff about the parking garage to be built at Truman College.
If TIF funds are paying for this, we're wondering how a new community college garage is expected to aid in revitalizing the retail situation in the 46th Ward. We also wonder why this information isn't posted on the alderman's web site, and if the community meeting will be held at a time when the majority of the community's residents will be able to attend.
Hello Ms. XXXXX,
Thank you for your email.
There is a community meeting being planned for the week of the 17th. I will email you with the specific details once everyone is confirmed. If you do not hear from me by the end of the week, feel free to send me another email as a reminder.
