"Community voices"

I would be hard pressed to say it better than this article, so I am going to send you to a Daily Illini editorial:



My google crawlers picked it up because the editor mentions the Unit 4 Summer Employment Program, and what a good thing that is in potentially decreasing violence in our community.


I’ll ask if I can quote the article verbatim here. In the meantime, I encourage you to go read it.

    Thanks for the article. The council passed the bonding for Bristol Place. Not all of that area needs to be leveled. So the issue I would like to explore is why all of this money is pointed toward bricks and mortar rather than all of the other words stated by several council members as to what ought to be happening. None of these words are new. But funding has been scarce. Here is a huge amount in bonds–maybe a large portion of the bond monies ought to be directed to what would be described as “soft programs.” Access Initiative at 9M is not making a difference. Maybe a new approach ought to be explored.

      Pattsi, did you ask that question of the council? I am curious what their response is.

      Now I need to go google for what the bond amount was….
