I'm in favor of this kind of legislation. It's not about authority, but about preservation. Anyone who wants to ruin their historic home with inappropriate modifications/additions can buy one that isn't in an area protected by such an ordinance.

I don't know where you live, lanacek, but I live in the city, and am fine with this expenditure of my tax dollars.

Take my word for it dmacker, as a regular rider, I can assure you that running the buses is much cheaper than paying cab fare for everyone who rides them.

Anything that will makes roads less subsidized is good.

This just goes to show that you don't have to run from the problems in your neighborhood. Instead, you can work with your neighbors to fix them.

So, let me get this straight. Bribery, perjury, conspiracy, money laundering, etc. are OK, if it (arguably) saves the taxpayer money?!?

"The voters clearly told them to renovate Fitch..." So, you believe the voters voted down spending $41 million for a new building, because they'd rather spend as much--or more--to renovate the existing building?

It's too bad so many brick streets--that lasted over half a century--were resurfaced with asphalt that needs patched every year.

Most of the problems the city faces are caused by (or exacerbated by) disinvestment.
