I'll take the job.


Of course it will. the private portion of the building would generate property tax revenue. I'm not sure this needs a new TIF district though.


First impression: I Love this idea!! Much better use than the Hockey arena. About the correct amount of new Hotels rooms we are in need of, and utilization of the Lake Michigan view which seems to have been lacking for the first 150 years of this city. And we start actually collecting pro…

Welcome to downtown Racine! Looking forward to trying you out. So many great dining choices downtown! PS the paper straw thing is just political posturing, and are not a threat to the planet. Drinking from a paper straw is just silly. But the recycled take out packages are very much appre…

Urban Pioneer commented on Egg Plant Café moving Downtown

Welcome to downtown. I have to admit the name Egg Plant Cafe threw me off of stopping there. I presumed it was some uber lefty Vegan joint, that wouldn't have a satisfying meal for my tastes. I'll definitely try it out. I spread the wealth around all of the downtown places.

BTW Sta…

It's good to see that Mitchell Wagon lofts is ALREADY at full market rate, and I know that Belle harbor has been transitioning out subsidized tenants as they move out. Per the article it looks like State and Main can do the same thin in 3 years.

It's be great to have Hovde or Gorman …

The GOP is responsible for this? The GOP is trying to END it!. This has nothing to with Act 10. And the states share at 66% has dropped all the way down to 64% Hardly a major decrease! Furthermore the Voucher system has saved Billions of dollars in education cost, and Walker and the G…
