Update: The Missouri Supreme Court overruled Judge Dierker’s ruling. In June of 2018, one day before the attorney general of Missouri sued Paul McKee, the City of St. Louis cut ties with Northside.
The Post-Dispatch is reporting that Robert Dierker has thrown out the Northside TIF. More to come in the future, I’m sure. Personally, I was wondering what was taking McKee so long to get started. It seems like he had never lined up any funding, and was just dithering for the last year. What does this mean for the Near North Side???
