Harrisburg Happening

Since the cat is out of the bag, here's the scoop on

Midtown development:

Hacc and the city are working together to rehab the old press building on Third and Reily into classroom space.

According the HACC's president, this is what will happen:

"The facility will be home to our technology and trade programs including carpentry, home building and remodeling and industrial maintenance. It will complement the Community Center for Technology and the Arts which is less than a block away. The two buildings will be joined by a new "urban meadow." The meadow will be a pedestrian only avenue and will make movement between the two buildings very easy, as well providing access to an additional 750 parking spaces being added in the area. "

I love the idea of a urban meadow, great way to create a campus setting in the city. They should have more of them, like Savannah has the "squares". Wonderful place for people to sit for a spell. I can't wait till I see the students busy with their books in the great outdoors. Even if it is just a small patch of land. Very nice.....good design idea. Cudos to the design firm.

Ever notice that the discourse here is much more respectful and pleasant than on PennLive's forums? (That is, other than when Milton drops by, but he seems to have tired of his game)

PennLive has gotten quite nasty lately

Way to go, Jones.

If you want to call someone a bitch, do it here. You're allowed.

Oh good. Because that lady REAALLY is a bitch. I call her a Ver-bitch, since she seems so fond of Verbeke street and her ability to pronounce it correctly.
