  1. Interesting perspective in the article: "‘Back in Pennsylvania, the free-market Commonwealth Foundation believes land banks 'breed corruption, do a poor job of moving property and therefore have a terrible track record of reducing blight,' spokeswoman Gina Diorio said in an email."

  2. Right, right and right!!! Have we seen a reduction in blight? This Land Bank deal was pushed by the mayor at a school board meeting. He strongly urged them to vote in favor of pursuing this.

    Where are the results​? I'm sure it takes time, but the public needs to see results to believe in the effort.

  3. Columbia is out of control.
    Good luck Lebanon.
