  1. SERIOUSLY?? A purchase price well north of $150K per unit? And this is AFTER selling off part of the development to Leo Brown Group for the senior housing project? Claiming a 26-acre LAKE (really about 17 +/- acres of gravel pit that is open to the public, aka the river hillbillys)?? No walking or cycling access to anything close?? No traffic light?? Nice location, but what was Inland thinking?? Congrats to Milhaus (and I believe Glick as well), but this goes WAY beyond a home run. This is Derek Jeter hitting a ninth-inning, game-seven walk-off grand slam to win the world series and then handing out five gift baskets to Miss Universes from 2010 to this year.... (all in the same night) UNBELIEVABLE

  2. The new criminal justice center will eliminate the need for the jail at 40 S Alabama. It will also make obsolete the City County Building at 200 E Washington St. With the courts gone, remaining city government offices could be moved to Old City Hall and nearby vacant office space. Two prime pieces of real estate soon to be available and on the tax rolls.

  3. How about building a tower connected to the old city hall/state museum? They could use the historical structure as a swanky lobby and upscale offices

  4. I am working with a group of others to stop a swine CAFO from coming to our neighborhood. Only 750' from the city limits of Greenfield! After we beat this one, I want to start a proactive campaign across the state to get legislation changed. Anyone want to put their power to use?

  5. The proposal tabled by the council committee was Ballard's attempt, once again, to raise residents' property tax by eliminating the homestead property tax credit. The bill was not about pre-K. Mayor Ballard just wants property taxes raised without any strings on how the money is spent. The council has already been duped on these tax increases before. Just weeks ago, Ballard pushed through a 43% increase in the public safety tax to hire new officers. Now we find out the administration is not going to spend more than 14% of that increase on new officers. This comes on the heels of a 65% increase in the COIT in 2007 also for new officers and we ended up with no increase in police officers. I'm a Republican and I would like nothing more than to blame the Democrats. But Democrats are the only ones acting with some fiscal responsibility. Mayor Ballard and his Republican councilors I'm ashamed to say have never met a tax or fee they didn't want to increase. And now they want to start a new entitlement program, pre-K, which by most credible studies offers no long-term benefits.
