The Flip Side Of The Opportunity Corridor

In a nasty writing on, an attack is made on the individual leading the charge on the Opportunity Corridor. I have doubts that Terry Eggars really sees this as a conflict. Further, I am doubtful as to whether there is a conflict between his participation as the editor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer and a member of the Development Authority for the City of Cleveland.

There is always a problem in Cleveland because those who are in leadership positions really care about the City. To skewer great anger at these individuals may not make sense given the desire to move Cleveland forward.  But the article below does show a different opinion than that held by this blogger.  ....So it is offered to you.

This project stinks. At more than $100 million per mile, it’s an extravagant highway project in a state that’s out of money. It’s going to result in the destruction of 90 homes and more than a dozen businesses (the vast majority owned by minorities). It’s pretty much right out of the 1960s “urban renewal” playbook — nevermind that highways have drained wealth out of Cleveland neighborhoods for decades.

This project was born — as all admirable projects are — by a group of businessmen from the Greater Cleveland Partnership, including Plain Dealer publisher Terry Eggars (whose skillful handling of the Plain Dealers finances should leave us all reassured.)
