David Merriman Quoted in Tribune Article on Lincoln Yards TIF Study

David Merriman, James J. Stukel Presidential Professor in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, is quoted in a Chicago Tribune article on a TIF study for the Lincoln Yards project that was written by a consultant hired by the developer. Merriman notes it’s a common practice in project proposals that call for tax increment financing, but that the state should require an objective analysis of areas being considered for TIF status.
