A reader sends in this news:
"Looks like the Sedgwick plan for Maryville is down the toilet thanks to the amazing work initiated by Janis Tiffin and her husband David Hemmings who gave residents the real facts on this massive development. Janis used her architect’s background to dig up the real plans for this monster-sized development that was completely out-of-scale for our neighborhood, hosted a standing-room-only community meeting, while David created a grassroots website to inform neighbors.
Unfortunately the Maryville TIF was pushed through, even though there was tons of misinformation and lacking detail. It will take a new alderman who really cares about the community to disband this TIF and put the money back into our parks, schools and infrastructure."
