Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

I agree w/ PhilmerPhil - I get tired of all the money that is spent on studies, planning, etc. By this time the city should know what is good urban development. Instead of spending money on additional studies - it needs to put that money towards implementing what is suggested. I don't think that we ...

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

I am curious as to whether there is still any lurking interest in redeveloping the Hinkle-Murphy house and surrounding area.
