    As someone who grew up in the southside of Lansing (the area South of Mt. Hope Rd), it really annoys to me to see that part of Lansing basically rot away while millions in investment and tax breaks are poured into the downtown every year. The longer this area of Lansing is neglected, the worse it is going to get.

    I agree with you about unions and growth, btw. I really don’t think it is correct to blame unions for the developer’s decision not to do what the city required him to do in order to get his tax break. The regulations could be a lot worse really. Some cities around the world require far more from developers than what was required of Gillespie.
