“MR. LEHR TOLD ME, TOLD ME, THAT YOU AND HE HAD SERIOUS DISCUSSIONS WITH THE POWER COMPANY.”, Joe DiSciullo at an RDA meeting February 19, 2998.
We want the Velodrome and the many business that will tag along with it. We want the Hotel and Walgreens. We want high rise downtown condos and apartments. We want people that want to live in a vibrant city walkable city close to rail lines, the not a lifeless suburbs that many people in Pennsylvania live in. Incidentally, the largest demographic for the next 20 or more years is people who want to live in a vibrant walkable city. Suburban trophy homes aren’t white elephants, they’re dinosaurs.
