    Harley should not get this public alley. They have recieved enough free money from the taxpayers. Of course my opinionmeans nothing as the council has already decided to give away another portion of our city.

    And of course they will turn down the senior housing development because it might cause Marinos to lower their rent costs to something seniors can afford. The slum loards are all alike. They want to get rich on the backs of seniors.

    Harley doesn’t own the alley yet. How could they build on it?

    I remember the harley deal showing that the two buildings were to be connected to greatly increase their square footage. This has not been done other than a small addition and a face lift so is the dollar amount of the Minert/ Beerman deal going to be reduced.
