Why does encouraging the growth of new housing stock have to be legislated? Why does council have to vote on this? If the city leaders would create an environment where there was potential for the PRIVATE SECTOR builders to see opportunity, this would happen automatically in the PRIVATE SECTOR free market of supply and demand. Improve the city environment as to desirability and it will happen automatically. New slant on residential attraction......if you improve the quality and image of the town, the builders will be around.

Again, just as with the city purchasing real estate for sale (Thatcher properties/Rose Building, the whole downtown as examples) and development, the city just can't distinguish between where public sector responsibilities end and where private sector responsibilities begin. It is not government's business to be involved in private sector affairs. Let the market dictate the action and stop forcing the issue. They haven't learned a thing from their claim to get out of the real estate business using our taxpayer money as they promise over and over again to stop the practice, yet it continues to this day. We are a cash strapped city according to city hall people. No business spending what little revenue we have on real estate owned by the city nor giving out business loans. Millions in taxpayer money spent in the downtown area alone. Should have all been private sector money used. Some business owners have never paid their city loans back. You would have thought that given the poor record of resale (reference the Manchester Hotel and the Studio Theatre as examples), that they would have learned their lesson by now.......but, then we must realize who's been running this town for the last three decades and we have our answer. Mistake after mistake made over the decades. Sad.
I'm so proud of my hometown and what it has become. Recall 'em all. Let's start over.

Oh, yeah, I almost forgot.......there is that little thing in attracting new residents which involves a quality school system. Middletown schools have a well-earned reputation of being one of the poorest performers in the state. That's not helping either, especially when no one is convinced that the situation will ever improve. Just building houses won't do the trick. Gotta offer decent schools and quality of life benefits too.
