Have our city leaders lost their minds? An apartment building for the artist community, really? An apartment building to replace the parking garage?
Fancy sidewalks with pictures and now a church to take over our historic village when churches are closing in Rome.
And a buyer from the sanctuary state of California has this idea. Who will support this church? Is he bringing people with him? Do we really want this?
Here is a novel idea, let us vote on these ideas. Rome is one of the most historic cities in New York.
Why are you not capitalizing on that? Give me a break! How about a mini mall to replace the garage with small shops featuring local farmers, craftsmen, artists etc.
Bring business back to Rome so visitors will have a reason to stop here. We need leaders who will put Historic Rome back in the spotlight.
