Harrisburg Happening

Reed and Buddies at it Again

The Central Penn Business Journal has an article on Jetsonville in the May 19 edition. Again, the people who want to develop chunks of Harrisburg never bother telling the owners of the properties. First, Reed talks about his vision of the platform city and is quoted as saying "A low rise, affordable-housing complex is not the right use for that block of the city." But nobody told the owner, who built the complex with a housing development grant from the city in the 1990s. Quote the owner, "I don't know anything about it." And surprise, he's not too keen on selling. How much money is the city going to waste building, financing and tearing down again as the mayor's "vision" shifts?

Like I've said before...the Reed machine is too entrenched to be fixed..we have to wait for it to completely break...then build a new city government. Folks its gonna be an ugly transition. The city being placed in receivership will be the first volley...
