City gives Under Armour a sweetheart deal

October 10, 2011

In the October 7th edition of the Baltimore Sun, it was reported that Under Armour had "received City Planning Commission approval Thursday to pursue waterfront improvement projects near its Locust Point headquarters with the help of tax increment financing." It further states that these projects "include a community pier ... bulkhead improvements ... a 'greenway'" and "a pedestrian bridge." What the article did not report was the parts of these projects that will have a significant impact on Locust Point's ever increasing traffic and parking problems, and it glazed over the fact the city's taxpayers are again going out on a limb to sell bonds to finance this for wealthy developers.
