On ORD 2007-968 (Fair Share Assessmt for “Northwood Town Center” Proj.) Phillip Peterson indicated that a public hearing has to be scheduled and then we can proceed with the bill.  The Chair said that he had spoken with JTA and Brad Thoburn on the matter and that there wasn’t any flux right now and that maybe we ought to consider withdrawing the bill.  Brad Thoborn said that he and Dylan Reingold will meet to address issues in the bill and that a substitute was likely to be presented.
