Video: Fighting City Hall

You may have heard about a Chicago developer who has subpoenaed Google in an effort to learn the identities of two anonymous blogs on the city's north side. Maybe you haven't; the mainstream media has so far ignored the story. The developer, Peter Holsten, is building a massive mixed-use project on a site called "Wilson Yard," half a mile north of Wrigley Field. Wilson Yard has been a contentious issue for residents of the Uptown neighborhood, and the bloggers have been highly critical of Holsten, the city, and the local alderman. Here is a video from "Fix Wilson Yard," a grassroots group that has sued the City of Chicago over alleged misuse of tax increment funds (TIF). CNB RSS Feed
