Million $ hard spent, why not for private venture that costs no tax $ and generates tax revenue. Great system.

Wasn’t this going to be a grocery store and a J Sarg culinary school?

@Samuel – the grocery store and cooking school are coming to 25th and Nine Mike. East View is 5 or 6 blocks east of that.

What the hell? The same RRHA that has proven they can’t manage their own affairs?

Have they found a replacement store? The first guy who was supposed to be subsidized pulled out of the deal saying he was too busy in tidewater area.

Betty Betsy Migliaccio – nothing has been announced, but the main financial backer has said that everything is still on track. Folks close to the project have been saying for a while – before anything was announced – that it is not dependent on the one operator.

@church hills peoples news Do you have any information on what’s going on with the Creighton court redevelopment? I thought that the project was going to start this summer? I see that the school is torn down

One of the “R”s in RRHA should stand for Ridiculous. Get our public money out of their hands. They own Far too much real estate all over town that would be privately redeveloped (on average) in a much more positive way. They need to have a scheduled monthly auction of their real estate.

This great news, they can close all those run downs stores and fake corner store business. The home owner in this area deserve better.
