Talking with Captain Mike the other day he made an intersting comment. He mentioned the humor in reading the "Welcome to Historic Lockport" only to arrive DT and see nothing there; especially when compared to places like Medina.
After losing so much of DT to "Urban Renewal", the big old houses close to downtown are pobably the next best asset to build off of. It is another reason I find any demolition of the house in that area a notable loss. Granted, a lot have been bastardized over the years (I know my house was) but a lot of features remain that will never be duplicated again on this scale.
Where is the plan to encourage rehabilitation and to help foster a reasonable ROI for those willing to put the sweat equity in? In what ways could we help it along when the government itself won't?
