Frank Elias, owner of Utica Coffee Roasting Co., said he and other area business owners are worried the pantry, which serves the homeless and mentally ill among its clients, could change the complexion of a street they’ve worked hard to rejuvenate.

I completely agree, I'm a vet that used to work with Rich, he is crazy, how does a museum in a third floor of a building with No elevator help our vets?! Or buying a new building help??!!

This is a terrible location for a food bank. I feel bad for frank and others. How can the city continue to let its downtown be taken over by non profits! Maybe the mayor should do his job and start governing the city.
So much for the master plan.

Is it not bad enough that we have the drug infested hotels that you see when coming off the thruway, seriously! Lets add more crap to our downtown, you wonder why people are ashamed of our city. Here is just another thing to add to the list. Feel sorry for all those businesses.

HAHA! I hate this city! I hope Frank and the tailor guys move to new Hartford. The city is running everybody off. Let them keep the roaches and rats that are infesting Utica.

Not that the food bank isnt a bad idea but come on! Placing themselves right next door to business that spent alot of money fixes up the crapholes. Its a slap in face to them! Not the other way around.
the rent is high

Vince Scalise, of the Outreach Center, says the reasons are simple and finite. He says the "Feed our Veterans" outfit is not meeting its obligations, or, more importantly, the needs of veterans.
"They were there for almost two years and they probably made eight rent payments. Eight monthly payments and the rent's not the problem, it's not the concern, money's never been the concern our concern is meeting the unmet needs of the veteran population of central New York," Scalise said..
