Aldermen Talk About McEagle "Concept"

Yesterday the Beacon published an interesting article on the McEagle project by reporter Dale Singer. The article is relevant because it includes the most substantial remarks by aldermen April Ford-Griffin (D-5th) and Marlene Davis (D-19th) on the plan that I have read. Oddly, the article makes no mention of Alderman Kacie Starr Triplett (D-6th), whose ward includes a substantial part of the project's southern end, where development will likely begin.

The article also mentions the date and time of the next meeting on the plans, but does not indicate that the meeting will be open to the public or the press -- just a "wider audience."

That meeting will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 21 at Central Baptist Church (2842 Washington Avenue).

It's no longer at Vashon?

Yeah, I was under the impression it was at VHS as well. That is what the Post Dispatch reported... although they never listed a time.

Where ever it may be, I'll be there!

Do they have a count regarding the number of African American families they evicted? How many sold under duress because a neighboring house was collapsing due to coordinated brick rustling? We know much much it took for aldermen to sell out, yet what about the human cost of this "redevelopment?"
