Wilson Yard is a proposed mixed-use housing development made possible by the creation of a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district.
Well, it was supposed to have been a mixed-used development, right now, according to Fix Wilson Yard, the development will "be dominated by two ten-story towers of densely packed low income housing that will poorly serve its residents and undermine the safety and economic progress of the neighborhood surrounding it."
The News-Star reported earlier this week about two more subpoenas.
The neighborhood block club Buena Park Neighbors and the Uptown Neighborhood Council are also being subpoenaed for documents identifying contributors who have posted on both organizations' Web sites. The neighborhood organizations are being asked to produce all posts in "the form of a blog, chat room comment, website (sic) post or any other form that relates to the Wilson Yard development, Alderman [Helen] Shiller, or Uptown development."
This is getting real ugly.
