The town was dying and still is. The population was declining and still is. Six of nine council members would not approve a tax abatement to bring new housing into a depressed borough. Its a sin that anybody that voted "NO" would still be sitting on the borough government almost ten years later, as they continue to watch the borough die a slow and painful death because of their decisions.

nobody wants to move here, you have to give them some incentive to live in a depressed area, give them the tax break, lure them in, since then theres very little development at all, take the shot, attract the people in

By now the tax abatement would be over and we would be getting taxes. It wasn't a free ride, just an incentive. You should know what your talking about before you shoot off your mouth.

Old news. North Braddock is a pit. All the decent streets like Grant, Grandview, Preston etc. are now filled with hood rats and senior citizens just trying to hold on. You are dreaming if you think "YOUNG PROFFESIONALS" were going to purchase a few homes on the top of hill near a struggling golf course, and then think it was going to be the savior of the town. Absurd to the say the least. Even if the homes were built, by now Jerome and latisha would be renting them out for 300.00 a month.
