Housing projects in Utica...

Yesterday's Observer Dispatch story, The pros and cons of Utica's housing projects, dove-tails with our recent blog Housing Visions...between $500,000 to $600,000 per 2 family unit...

According to the article:
Utica Councilman Jerome McKinsey, whose fifth district covers Cornhill, said he’s inclined to view the subsidized housing projects around Cornhill as a positive development.
Whereas Councilman-At-Large Ed Bucciero thinks that single-family affordable housing that makes low-to moderate-income individuals homeowners is the way to go.

Councilman Bucciero was quoted in the Observer Dispatch as saying:
“Why are we infusing back into these neighborhoods multi-family homes again when history should have taught us a lesson?”
Councilman Bucciero has provided us with a copy of his recommendations which he presented to the Utica Democratic caucus on January 5, 2011. Click here!

Whether the project is good for Utica remains to be seen; according to the Observer Dispatch article "the effects of those projects remain largely unquantified".

Question is, and should be, how does it all fit into the Utica Master Plan that is yet to be finalized?

The "master plan" is nothing more than a pie in the sky reelection ploy by mayor moonbeam. The infrastructure of the city is crumbling before our eyes ,neighborhood decay is spreading and the mayor doesn't have a clue.

I really do not care about Utica. I have trouble enough comprehending what is going on in New Hartford. I also do not care to hear about Koziol's problems with fatherhood discrimination!!!
