CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE
: This article by the Gazette, fails to get into the details of just how much debt the city of Coralville has gone into, debt residents will have to cover. The money Coralville has leveraged to develop the Iowa River Landing is a big factor in Coralville's $280 million of debt.
Von Maur is set to debut its big, new store at the Iowa River Landing a week from today.
The department store’s opening represents a significant milestone for the mixed-use development that has been years in the making, cost millions of dollars, spurred tax increment financing (TIF) reform at the state capitol and has boasted a large cast of characters and key players.
