This time it's just ridiculous. You already have an apartment complex right at the end of the road. What kind of upscale paradise do these people think they live in? Anyone who can afford 1400.00 a month rent has more money than you do with your dump on Merrick or Turin road anyway.

What the hell does Rome need luxury housing for? Who the hell is going to pay that much for an apartment right down the street from the trashy apartments? Then they want to put some long road out to Jervis ave? GET REAL! According to the paper Peter Previt said the rd would most likely go right next to his house. I happen to know where that is and I tell you it is WAY to congested in that area now. This would put that road coming out just East of the Union/Jervis intersection. They can not extend Union because it would go right through a house. Go sit up there before and after school or most any time of day. I can personally tell you that it is difficult to get out of those driveways already. The traffic goes way to fast.

Not everyone in Rome makes mill wages........ There is a lot of duel income couples making in excess of $120,000 a year.

Seriously, what traffic?

Are you out of your f-ing mind? Houses are going for less than that. Nice houses. If people have that kind of money they would buy a house not rent a two bedroom apartment with nothing included. There would be no reason. Sure when the base was here people didn't buy because they could be transferred but the base is not here. Let them build them. They will never get them filled. BUT,there is NO NEED to put an entrance on Jervis. That is just stupid and will bring down property values. There is no way they can tie it in to another road up here. People worked hard there whole lives and don't want there neighborhood turning into a speed way. It is bad enough now. Seriously,if you have to ask "what traffic" then you are either blind or you are never in the area.

you really are a simple minded dope. There are no plans for to put in a road out to Jervis ave. The traffic was way worse when the base was active. This city is less than half the size it was population wise 25 years ago and you dopes are worried about increased traffic from a few apartments. Turin road is a main artery for the city. It always has been. If you don't like then you move as far away from rome as possible. Who gives a rats ass what they charge for rent. As long as it's not another subsidized housing complex with a 30 tax free agreement then who cares? Has it ever occurred to you idiots that people with money may want a nice place to live without all the upkeep bs of owning a home? Joe Ferlo should be forced out of rome main streets because this guy is against anything that will help the small businesses. This city needs to grow with jobs and residents and this guy is against every opportunity to do that.

Do you read? The paper explained it. If there are no plans to put a road to Jervis ave then why did the homeowners on Jervis ave get an informational paper from the councilman saying that there was a meeting and outlining the plan? It is in black and white that they proposed an entrance to Merrick rd and an entrance to Jervis ave. If you plan to debate an issue you should first know what you are talking about. Try having them put a road right next to your house (if you even own one). They will probably start the project with the road to make it easier to get the trucks in and out. Then you have these massive construction vehicles going up and down past your home that are going to ruin the foundation from all the vibration. If Previt is correct this road running along side his house is going to ruin two homes. There is not a lot of room there. that puts the road a lot closer to these houses than Jervis ave is.

They will be filled quickly. Not everyone wants to pay upkeep or property taxes or be tied to a mortgage. The new tenants will spend their money here instead of in New Hartford or Dewitt where they rent now. Google New Hartford apartments and read.$1400 a month is not unusual.

Your opinion of "nice" obviously differs greatly from mine. These will be high end units for high end people. Not the cheap crap apartments that are at the end of the road.

What traffic?

I know.... Too much for you to comprehend......

I can read just fine. I think you need some lessons in reading comprehension. It was clearly stated in the article that Dibari said there are no plans for a entrance off Jervis. So it is you that needs to learn what the hell it is you are talking about. Take your fear mongering bs elsewhere. Rome needs this to help shift our demographic away from a welfare town. I do own a home for your information and I'd like to see my property value go up unlike dopes like you who seem content with this city going to shit.

I have no problem with the apartments being built as long as there is no entrance onto Jervis. From my understanding,again from the paper sent to homeowners on Jervis,they want to put an entrance on Jervis. If it was wrong,Great! The paper came the day of the meeting. Not much notice and I was unable to make the meeting. Now I have a new question. Since you brought it up,why would anyone in there right mind move from New Hartford to Rome? Rome does not have the shopping,jobs,hospitals or even the Doctors that New Hartford and Utica offer. I don't see it happening but as long as Jervis ave is left out of this plan then go right ahead.

I didn't say anything about people moving from New Hartford to Rome, another poster did. I don't think that is realistic as this developer is trying to do the same thing there. What is most likely is you'll get people who work on the base to rent there, companies on the base might rent corporate apartments there, if nano ever materializes you could attract some of those people and of course retirees that don't want the upkeep of a house. I could care less what they charge for rent as long as it doesn't get filled with welfare scum. In fact the higher the rent the better. It's funny how no one made a big stink about 1/4 million dollar apartments for wellies paid for by tax payer dollars at liberty gardens and south James st but a developer comes along and wants to build high end apartments that will be paid for by the people occupying them and everyone's got their panties in a bunch. You got your priorities backwards.

I am all for growth as long as it doesn't negatively affect me or my loved ones. My guess about no one making a stink about the welfare apartments is that #1 for the people living near Liberty Gardens it was an improvement. The wellies were already there and the new housing would be less of an eye soar. #2 The South James st apartments are in S Rome. No one really cares and they actually looked nice when they were built. Though I did know someone who lived in the little alley behind there when they were being built. She didn't like them because she could no longer see James st from her living room. I know that is not a good reason but being that she was in her 90's that was what she liked to do (watch the traffic). Also she was concerned about her safety with the trash moving in.
