@mudduck- If you are capable, which it doesn't appear to be so, look past the numbers. You are restoring neighborhoods that are near assets. Re-Read the article. The approach that this development group is strategic. Not just "sinking money" as @Utica put it. These neighborhoods can and will come back if there a strategic plan is implemented and executed. The math does work, because of the subsidy. The article states that is the only way it does work. Read the article and digest it. Put your personal economic and political beliefs aside, and take the time to read and understand that if you don't start saving the neighborhoods that still do have a chance, the plague of chronic abandonment that has devastated this area for 30 years will keep spreading, and likely as far into the neighborhoods you might live in.
zz3@ more desirable doesn't sound like a stretch. It is more desirable than what it was. If you knew what it was, then maybe you wouldn't have such an ignorant outlook as your counterparts I've already mentioned.
Be a part of the solution people, not another part of the evident problem.
When you have something negative to say about a certain effort, try to come up with a better solution before jumping the gun...in all seriousness- maybe you have a better idea that this town could sure use.
