There are tiny signs of progress as 21st and N after the City Council approved a redevelopment agreement there, including $4.7 million in TIF. There's still a long way to go before the first shovels are turned and nails are driven, but it's a good sign. And for once it seems like TIF is being used somewhat appropriately. That's a nice change.
It'll be interesting to watch and see how long it takes this project to come to fruition. It'd be great if major visible work begins in 2014. My fingers are crossed.
