TIF hearing draws Port Covington protest

TIF hearing draws Port Covington protest

Several dozen people turned out Thursday to criticize Baltimore's subsidies for real estate developers — especially the $535 million of financing for infrastructure proposed to support plans in Port Covington — saying they contribute to divisions in the city.

The testimony came at a protest and a general public hearing organized by City Councilman Carl Stokes as part of the run-up to a City Council vote on the Port Covington proposal, which is designed to pay for roads, sewers, parks and other projects in South Baltimore, where Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank's company plans a major mixed-use development next to a new headquarters for the sports apparel maker.
