Not in my backyard

According to the Times our local housing authority has received a $15 million grant to help with the rebuilding of the old El Paso Natural Gas (blue flame) headquarters.

Word on the street is that the project may not get the go-ahead from the authority.

It seems that putting poor people downtown does not set well with some people involved with the downtown projects.

Maybe they only consider government assistance to be a good thing when people with money receive it.

Of particular interest in this situation is the fact that the building is owned by our local billionaire.

We deserve better

    Speaking of “Artist’s Lofts”, . . . Those have been built downtown. Is there a bunch of ART coming out of there ?
    Where is all this extra “Art” at ?
    I just have not heard anything.
    All quiet on the “Artist Loft Art” ? ? ?

    Wasn’t the plan to attract hipsters to DTEP? That doesn’t seem like the HACEP crowd to me. Maybe we could import some from Austin? Offer them incentives like free Starbucks cards?
