^^ Generally I agree with @Htsguy, but I am OK with adding retail at Cedar/Fairmount and the Lee/Meadowbrook lots as it is filling in gaps in strong existing districts. Severance should be redeveloped, but we don't need to create a new retail district. If not all residential, the challenge with bringing non-retail commercial to the site is on the one hand the one thing I like about C.H. but bad for business attraction - our lack of highway access.
Some other thoughts I have on C.H. The former Coventry school was sold to the library for $1 who now lease it out to non-profits and other users. I'm all for having a non-profit center in the city, but frankly that shouldn't be the location. We are essentially subsidizing the non-profits by getting no taxes on that property. It's valuable land in that location. I'm all for subsidizing non-profits, just not there. The city owns 1 of the tudor buildings on S Taylor N of Cain Park and will acquire the other 2 due to back taxes (I think). These building have functionally obsolete retail. This retail should be repurposed as a non-profit center for the city.
