Ron Clark did confirm that he would be in attendance at tonight's meeting. He also told me there should be results from a housing study discussed by city officials.

"People have this idea that there are going to be people living there who don't have jobs and don't have income," said Stark, who specified that "affordable housing" is not the same as the much-stigmatized Section 8 housing.

So now we need to ask if TIF sheds some tax dollars to the school system. In all Ron Clark will only pay $3900. per year in taxes on the land for 30 years, what will the school get in cash for the next 30 years? The next question that should be asked is this, Kennisington Place on 76th and Lyndale was given $500K in up front TIF but now the courts have decided that Richfield was a second mortgage and we not getting one cent back ? How much did the school system loose on that one? Ron Clark is the only one walking away with the cash in hand!
