Harrisburg plans

I hate to be a wet blanket, but the mayor's last plan is really ridiculous. We're going to build a city on a platform? The drawings in the Patriot look like something out of the Jetsons. And as usual, no funding is lined up for the project.

What a nut job....and every other nut job just falls in line..."lets build a city on a platform!!" How about addressing the needs of our existing city? We can build a billion dollar platform, but can't open the hall manor police substation, or even add more cops. We have 35 cops retireing this year...what then..man this is all messed up...all while council passes a resolution to bring our troops home right now.....why stop there save the spotted owl too. This city is a one man show, and our council is an embarresement..

Well, I have to agree with you on this one. Who the heck is going to build a city on a platform. How about developing the empty lots we already have first - then worry about expanding. It is so typical - announce big plans with no time table, no financial backing, no nothing

How about almost anything other than a worthless smoking ban, a resolution to bring home the troops (UH OH! HARRISBURG CITY COUNCIL SAYS WE NEED TO BRING THEM HOME...BETTER ROUND THEM ALL UP NOW!!), or this crazy platform city.

How long to you think the list of actual productive moves would be? I can count about 10 off the top of my head that we've talked about here on this site alone...and there are many, many more.

Insanity.

Well well - it seems both PennLive and the City of Harrisburg is interested in our opinions on development. Really, you would think by now they would cloak their IP addresses.

I had to put a carriage return in to fit it in the column layout. cut and paste the first line, then cut and paste the second line so that it produces a single line in the url bar of your browser...sorry..it makes the joke not so funny...
