Tim is dead on with this comment and I have spoken with a few people in the community that have tried to purchase the property from the current owner. Unfortunately the owner makes good money from HUD for the low income rental revenue and has no incentive to sell. This really needs a creative solution and I couldn't agree more that the properties are an anchor keeping redevelopment of the Midway from moving forward. Any thoughts on how to make a change here?
