  1. The direct benefits to the poor are well documented and researched. People being relegated to “ghettos” or high crime neighborhoods enforces the cycle of poverty and crime that stems from it. Children raised in “good” neighborhoods have better educational achievement, make more money, are more likely to be employed and less likely to be incarcerated. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/01/upshot/maps-neighborhoods-shape-child-poverty.html And people not in poverty then reap the societal benefits of this upward economic mobility.
  2. Well, all evidence points to better outcomes when people live in income diverse neighborhoods. If you want to keep poor people poor, then you can segregate them.
  3. Mayor Pete recently posted a number of policy stances on his website. Some specific, some general.
  4. I can’t imagine how big the loss of SW to the suburbs would be... Dont f$%* it up Frank!
  5. This is what I was picturing; convert the green section to be compatible with light rail cars and keep the blue heavy rail compatible. At least while this transition period would be taking place to allow both cars to operate.
  6. Is there room to retro fit part of the Red Line stations for light rail and keep part for Heavy during the transition? Those station platforms are soooooo long.
  7. I read somewhere (and I can’t find it right now) that the smaller ships will be docking on the river instead of at the port. I thought that was an interesting choice.
  8. We have no idea what opportunity costs the City is taking on because developers don’t want to approach a project knowing that a neighborhood may fight against it...or similar to this case make the project unviable economically. Maybe it’s not a lot, but I bet it’s more than zero. I just don’t think artificial and unnecessary barriers should be in place when Cleveland is severely in need of development dollars. EDIT: Even on a small scale, I live in OHC...and I know homeowners who have tried to make improvements to their home, and given up because of block club push back or “requirements.”
  9. Potentially, that’s one solution definitely. I also think it could be possible to keep council-people elected by ward, but the “rules and norms” would have to be wholly changed. Cleveland’s issue is the fiefdom style in which the wards are run. Development, businesses, capital projects....nothing can be done without their sign-off or approval. I am a City of Cleveland resident, and this development affects me too...albeit not as directly as those in the neighborhood, but expanding the city’s population and tax base is in my interest. A project should not be able to be blocked single handedly by one person.
  10. Related, this is yet another reason why Cleveland’s ward based City Council is terrible.
  11. The new building yes. The renovation of the Painters Union building will be eight apartments renting at 80% of AMI.
  12. These people will do whatever it takes to “energize” their base, no matter how monstrous or inhumane that is.
  13. The militarization of police is a huge problem:
