Protesters Return To Rahm's Ravenswood House To Demand TIF Reform

Activists rallied in front of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Ravenswood home this weekend to demand reforms to the way the city spends a special pool of money known as Tax Increment Financing.

The protesters, who numbered about 50, marched from Uptown to Rahm's home this time specifically to protest plans to give $16 million in TIF money to developers planning a new high rise in Uptown at the site of a former hospital on Montrose Avenue. And like most protests of City Hall policies lately, some protesters carried signs calling for Rahm's resignation in the wake of several police misconduct scandals.
