This development proposal was approved
by the neighborhood and city council. It failed over a public funding
dispute between the mayor's office and the developer.
This website was
designed to promote neighborhood input for the development, which would
have encompassed the entire 800 block of E.Washington Ave (north side),
currently utilized for auto sales..
A neighborhood committee worked with the developer to solicit
public feedback.The committee consisted of
Alderperson Brenda Konkel and three
representatives each from Tenney Lapham and Old Marketplace neighborhoods.
Developer informs the neighborhood that the
project has been withdrawn.
