The Wheels On The Bus Go Round

Continental Real Estate has been charged with building a hotel and entertainment complex on the North Side.

"At a city planning commission meeting two weeks ago, Barry Ford, Continental's president of development, said "it's inappropriate to ask a project developer to meet with private groups and help resolve their problems."'

During a morning coffee break, local blogger Cara Jette of PghIsACity said:

"It's inappropriate for a project developer to take millions of dollars from the state and then refuse to talk with the local community."

Can't we find some other developer to throw money at? Time's up on Continental and they haven't even started building.

Thank you, Bill Peduto, Natalia Rudiak, and others for jumping on board the North Side bus tour and taking the time to listen to the concerns of the residents. It's nice to know there are some folks in our city government with a shred of humanity.
