I'm still trying to make peace with the idea that we're in bed with the Vranich family on these projects, but I'm glad to see evidence of progress. There's also new crane downtown at the former HMP/Federal Building, which means new construction, new jobs, and fewer vacant lots and derelict buildings. I don't know what impact the new retail will have on existing stores, but I know new residents will be a boon.

We're paying a high price to be sure, we're giving and lending tax dollars, and maybe selling a bit of our soul. The money doesn't bother me as much, after all wasn't that the idea behind these programs to encourage development? Are we not getting our money's worth? I suppose time will tell.
