TIF Talk

Posted By on 04.28.09 at 11:23 AM

On Wednesday, talk show host Mark Bazer will lead a discussion of my favorite topic--TIFs--at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia.

He'll be interviewing alderman Scott Waguespack, Daniel O'Neil, co-founder of everyblock.com, and me. As Bazer notes, his guests are all pretty critical of the TIF program. So he'll play devil's advocate.

Good luck. If Bazer can find something good to say about the way Chicago runs its TIF program, he's got a great future in public relations.

If discussion of tax increment financing isn't your thing, they'll be serving soup and bread and, of course, drinks. Maybe Mayor Daley will even stop by to talk about TIFs ... or at least do his best Blago impression. We can hope.

The show begins at six.
