More details here. This is very close to where I live. It is also just blocks from Theater IV and First Friday. This stretch of Broad has never felt safe. I don’t know what the city can do to clean it up, but I am not surprised when type of thing happens.
“I donâ€™t know what the city can do to clean it up,”
How about spending money on street cameras, better bus stops, and police patrols? Or better yet, how about spending more on schools, job training, and anti-violence programs?
You keep lobbying in favor of the millions spent on Center Stage and the Broad Street CDA (which are disastrous investments), and then you don’t know what can be done to clean up the City? I strongly suggest some self-reflection, Paul.
I don’t believe I’ve ever discussed the CDA. Considering it has only been open a month, the jury is still out on CenterStage. In the mean time we have a problem that needs dealing with that affects much more than the “white elephants” you are so fond of talking about.
Cameras and police patrols are good ideas. Is it possible to agree without being disagreeable?
