If you didn't watch the hearing on the Reunion Square TIF you should!
I’m going to try and avoid editorializing the hearing and will instead encourage my readers to watch it for themselves. That said, I was and still am very much in SUPPORT of the Reunion Square TIF and I am very disappointed that it has been shelved.
Go HERE to learn more about the TIF planned for Anacostia.
Go HERE to learn where the TIF stands now that it has been halted.
Just how long are Ward 8 residents expected to spend our money outside of our own community? Why are we forced to subsidize the grocery stores, retail, restaurants and retail in other communities while our own remains under-resourced?
There has never been a TIF in Ward 8, this would have been the first and if there was a community that ever needed it, it was ours. There are plenty of neighborhoods who would love to have a TIF awarded to their neighborhoods, why are we turning our backs on an opportunity to revitalize a vacant lot?!
Nards, there I go editorializing! Well, watch the hearing, decide for yourself and please comment on this post.
