Besides being progressive should mean creating something positive not creating more crap which is exactly what most progressive do.

Unless you upgrade or tear down the old housing stock cheap rents will still attract people that you might not want to invite over to the bar-b-q. You have to deal with the problem first. If they want to build it on their own dime without any subsidy knock yourself out.

1stwardcitizen, those nice new buildings will look really good across the street from those deteriorating "slums". Why not buy those "slums" cheap and rehab them for rental income?????

good points Pards, there is way too much empty real estate in g'ville to worry about building more that will end up run down in 10-15 years.

According to the General City Law of NY there is a reason and it should be followed. The last thing Gloversville needs is more apartments. What it does need is more quality apartments. However who is going to live in them and where are they coming from. Will they come from existing single family homes that are paying taxes. If so who will occupy their old homes. Does this guy need tax breaks? Pilot program? You should not create new housing until the old is addressed because the old will continue to deteriorate. If they are going to put 40 apartments in service and take out 40 others I'm for it otherwise let's fix what we got.

If you don't own it, you can't control it.

How is this different from the last fiasco on the north end of town? Does not seem like an ideal location to build.
