    The most interesting paragraph about the NW Side development came at the end of the article:

    “In addition, dozens of government workers, including police officers and firefighters, face disciplinary action for their alleged racially charged online comments against the housing proposal, as Arena’s office collected screenshots of their Facebook postings and turned them over to investigative agencies.”
