Re: “Cobbs Hill Village plan heads to a vote

While I respect the Coalition for Cobbs Hill Park for being concerned about the future of the City, I'm appalled by their position of evicting the existing low-income residents by 2041 and "returning this land to park land". They show crocodile tears for increased rent when they really want to eliminate the existing low-income residents altogether. How is this humane?

I predict that if the project is turned-down, the Coalition members will disappear into the woodwork when the hard work of determining how/where to place the existing senior low-income residents is tackled. We have enough mean-spiritedness at the federal level, we don't need more at the local level.

Re: “How will we fill up downtown's retail space?

I find it interesting that the idea of pop-up retail is being considered for our downtown "innovation district" and at the same time the City of Rochester refused to keep the Main Street transit shelters which could have housed the pop-up retail--especially when federal/state Main Street funds could have funded the renovation of the shelters. Truly un-innovative City thinking for our innovation district! Same ole, same ole thinking.....
