Isn't A TIF Supposed to Eliminate Blight?
In other Wilson Yard news, it looks like we may be getting a restaurant at 4436 N Broadway. Just $55,000 more TIF dollars for an "INTERIOR BUILDOUT FOR A RESTAURANT - WITH EXISTING HVAC SYSTEM, NEW REFRIGERATION, NEW ELECTRIC DISTRIBUTION WITH EXISTING SERVICE, PARTIAL NEW PLUMBING WITH EXISTING WASHROOM."
The building permit was issued on November 4th. A side note: Wouldn't it be nice if there were some vehicle, besides a volunteer blog and EveryBlock, to convey and enlighten us about what's going on in Wilson Yard? Like, an official website that could give clear and concise details about what's going on in our taxpayer-funded development? Nahhh, too much to hope for in this "transparent" ward. (Please, can May 15th get here already?)
