A Rebirth for gateway

As the price of choice land in the area tops $1 million an acre, big-dollar development is headed for Meridian Street north of Downtown, with two prominent, largely vacant office buildings in line for reuse. Full Story

About time someone cleaned-up the hodge podge look of this area, but a new Walgreens? Yea, that should be real classy!

It's encouraging. I just hope some of that vision, optimism and $ finds its way along US 40 from Irvington to the City-County building.

This is great. Indy needs to build up, and it needs help from regional planning to curb sprawl and encourage urban development. And Poodle Bart needs to start standing up to His Master Mitch and demand preference for factory siting and improved public transportation, particularly mass transit.
Too much meth down there Gary? Mayor Bart Simpson is beholden to Julia and the pea shakers, not Mitch. And why should the rest of the state pay for Indy mass transit?

Jay, the article was only marginally about WFYI. The main focus of the article was the large amount of redevelopment poised to occur on North Meridian Street near Downtown, and the proposed WFYI headquarters relocation was just one of many projects mentioned in the article

Furthermore, it's fine if you don't care for WFYI, but here is a hint--DON'T WATCH IT IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE PROGRAMMING THEY AIR. It really is that simple.

Oh Gosh, more tired regional sparring. It is sad that both of you don't have something better to do. The Indianapolis region would be even more prosperous and livable if its residents would stop barking at each other like inbred junkyard dogs engaged in petty turf wars and start taking pride in their region and working together to make the whole area a better place.

By the way, Bart Peterson is not beholden to either Julia Carson (who is rapidly sailing into senility), nor to Mitch Daniels (who has managed to become one of the most despised governors in Indiana history just halfway into his first term).

Also, your comment about "why should the rest of the state pay for Indianapolis mass transit?" makes little sense considering the whole state generally helps pay for transit projects specific to a particular region. For example, why should the rest of the state (and the rest of the country) pay for highways running through Lafayatte? Mass transit also benefits commerce, and it is not just highways which support commerce and economic development.

In any event, both of you please put down the crack pipe and go to rehab before you post gain.
