I would like to reply to Jane and John Wilson letter to city. I don’t mean to be disrespectful to any city officials but have you ever seen the television show “Are you smarter than a fifth-grader?” Well they are a lot smarter than the city officials.
Look at all the grant money the city got to beautify the downtown and now want to tear it all up and put a senior housing unit there. Now with the Rural King building, you had a building already built on one level. You have plenty of parking space, you have water, lights and some heat already. You have low-income Cass Plaza but they need more low-income housing that’s within walking distance to get medicine and grocery places to eat. I think the Express is still there.
Why not have a contest or vote? Give people a chance to have a say on the old Rural King building to become senior housing for low-income people. The Wilsons have the right idea for senior housing. So city officials, why don’t you look into something that is just right for the seniors to live.
