Build It

Morristown, TN

Build it and they will come. Dandridge finally gets its new Field of Dreams and Activity Center and Mark Jackson is now putting in low income housing projects right next to it. Gotta love the greedy people in this area who will do anything to get their hands on government subsidies. Nothing says "We'll Save You a Place" quite like a huge government Section 42 housing project right next to your pretty park. Enjoy Dandridge!

I thought half of Jefferson County was already "low income housing".

I can not believe that the city officials were not protecting the taxpayer's investment anymore than this. Surely there is a better location than next to the field of dreams. Before I moved back to Jefferson County I lived near one of these apartment complexes. No matter how nice it looks to start with, it will be in shambles in a few years and the article says that it has to be there as low income housing for 30 years. After years of nothing, Dandridge finally gets something for the kids and now this moves in next door. When the megasite comes this apartment building will be filled with people from other places coming here to work. I hope they are planning to hire more police because they are gonna need them.

This is the type of thing that Mark Jackson seems like he does with a lot of projects he's involved with. They will build a bunch of cheap, poorly built residences and then keep them until all of the internal systems need to be replaced and then sell it. I can pretty much guarantee that this thing will continue to go downhill from the minute the first resident moves in. You can see how other low income housing he has done and how it looks after just a short period. Its a quick money maker for him, but everyone else will have to pay the price.

Everthing this guy gets his fingers into, stinks worse than hog sheet. He belongs on the South side with his tacky and gawdy approach to everything.

They will have a nice place to play ball and make unsafe for all the old people (who paid for it) to become scared to go to. What a crock of sheeite ! Did we get the pool yet ?
Perhaps they should change the logo to "we will give you a place". What a crock of sheeite !
Pay close attention to any "aldermen who even begin to show support for this and eat their asses out ! 74% of kids on subsidized lunch (and breakfast) isn't enough, we need to recruit more til we get to 100%.
I know this is a chicknst attitude, but I am damn tired of paying taxes and fees and taxes and all I want is a damn road to drive on. But NO , HELL NO, we need schools to edjkate and feed students who have NO damn opportunity in this county, but NO HELL NO, lets build a megasite so we can bring in 20,000 people for 2-5000 jobs !(BLUE COLLAR)
I don't have any / all the answers, but I have one question, when is it going to be the TAXPAYERS TURN ?
Will need a new KFC

This is another way to introduce more racial diversity into Dandridge. Something we have been needing. Hsmburgers aren't cutting it anymore.

Had to make it a race thing, didn't you. Just because KFC closed doesn't mean we don't have enough black people in Dandridge. It just means KFC wasn't allowed to take EBT cards and between crappy food and prices Poor White Trash refused to pay, they couldn't afford to stay in business. Weigles killed what little business they had. I can't believe the station is still in business, it is always empty when I look over there while filling up at Weigles and getting a corn dog.

Knoxville is tearing down Walter P. Taylor Homes in East Knoxville. Knox County Schools is in deep crap with the test scores at Austin East and Vine. Most of the failing students live in Walter P. Taylor Homes.

Moving the displaced residents at Walter P. Taylor is a winner for Knox County. The schools can claim credit for greatly improved test scores and police and pat themselves on the back for reducing crime in east Knoxville.

I have no idea where the displaced residents are moving to and there has been no news on where they are moving to.
Your the one

What's wrong with people? Racial and cultural diversity brings new business to an area. How dare you bring the race thing into this you race baiter.I liked KFC and I'm not happy it closed.Low income housing residents have proven to be racially diverse, so you arse, I'm hoping for new things.I wanted another Mexican restaurant too, does that sound like a race thing to you, you Jackass?
thank you dandridge

Is that you slider? Sounds like you. LOL

Why all of a sudden anyone who lives south of the lake line are hated like the plague and they have lived here longer than you pukes have been born. Go over there and tell those people who have been here for generations what you really think of them. LOL

there was no racism. The poster just wanted another KFC, because with a 60 unit complex, restaurants will be crowded. They must like KFC. Nothing racist about that.

Nope, I live a long way from downtown in district 8 along with you but on the other side. I have nothing against the "people who live across the river" other than you have an entitlement issue that make you think you deserve more than everyone else because you pay more taxes - news flash you don't pay more taxes than the north side district 8 people do and we got nothing either. I just remember the south side loves Mark Jackson. How you like him now?

Nope, you haven't lived here longer and you don't pay more taxes. Get over yourself - puke! I know you all think you are special, but I would be happy to look any of you in the eye and tell you that you are not!
