Angry Uptown residents are uniting under the banner of Fix Wilson Yard, and a few days ago sent a letter to Mara Georges [PDF], Corporate Counsel for the City, announcing their intention to file a lawsuit over alleged misuse of the TIF site. CC'd on the letter: Target, originally announced as the anchor retail store but never formally committed. (And don't expect that movie theater, either.)
