This is a follow-up, I think, to earlier stories about possible redevelopment deals the city administration is promoting. It's hard to tell when the only people interviewed for the article work for the local gov't body that wants to do the deals. It could be just another Mayoral "press release" as transcribed by the "newspaper". Other than the city and the commercial interests involved, there is no community reaction reported. Just like it's always been, the only parties involved in deal-making are the mayor's office and his friends with commercial interests.
I hope someday New Albany becomes a town for residents too, not just the commercial interests and their friends.
