    Why is the Community Council only fighting for the addition of Carroll St and Crown St? Why not include Eastern Parkway, Union St, President St, Montgomery St. empire Blvd?

    rest assured, any housing “developers” who are interested in building here are NOT going to undertake this for our benefit, but for the sole purpose of lining their pockets at the expense of those who can’t afford the sick prices they charge per unit. no, we don’t want them here, thank you. as far as building parking facilities goes, nobody will buy prime real estate to build a garage if it won’t net them a VERY tidy income. so how many of us are going to be able to afford the prices they’d charge for a parking spot? the only… Read more »
