The City Council overrode
the Landmarks Commission this morning and approved $16 million in TIF funds. This means that the idea of an historic district in Madison is, for all intents and purposes, null and void because the precedent has been set. Are any other developers lining up at the Mayor's office for millions of dollars in TIF money promising a public patio?
Luckily the Mansion Hill neighborhood will survive the Edgewater remodeling but the turd spigot
has been turned on.
