Re: “More growth downtown? Developers keep signing on

Mr Roc. I said the area is losing population, not the city.

Re: “More growth downtown? Developers keep signing on

This all sounds pretty good. However, this area is still losing population, so until that changes, filling new city apartments simple means vacant apartments somewhere else in the area.

New employers are needed in the city that have an actual desire to hire current city residents. If the new apartments attract white suburbanites who eventually gain employment in the city, poverty will remain unchanged for current city residents.

Another question to ask is:. Why new construction? How about rehabbing and renovating the city' s current vacant buildings. This time concentrating on trendy lofts and apartments for low income people.

"Progress ensures neglect" was graffiti I saw in San Francisco shortly after the 1989 earthquake. I fear that will continue in Rochester. Unless current city residents end up living and working in the shiny new construction, other areas of the city will suffer worsening neglect.

It would be nice to hear a pledge from all involved in these projects that they intend to hire a minimum of 50% of their new employees from among city residents.

Re: “Nojay's life, and death, made an impression

For many. the impression left by Bill Nojay was not at all good. I am happy his words will no longer be heard on the radio.
