a question or 4 for George Cantor

Couple of things, George, 4 actually, for now—


--is there a recent study showing how this expenditure benefits the economics of the neighborhood—it seems to me that inserting 60+ subsidized units into an area with a large number of existing properties for sale and for rent is counterproductive—we don’t need to absorb more housing units at this point—such a “development” beggars existing property owners


--was there a section 106 review performed? (was “Near West” involved in this, or is that a typo?)


--what about the water and sewer issues—basic infrastructure problems-- that we found to be a deterrent in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s? NRP already has a track record of ignoring such infrastructure issues, and feigning surprise on the back end


--is Cummins or Cimperman the “go-to” councilman on this one? We’re in transition, I hear.
