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!

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