Great Idea, Wrong Time

Re: “Norfolk to purchase Berkley land for residential growth” Virginian-Pilot. November 19, 2008.

Purchasing this land to reserve for residential is a great idea. Maybe they already have a program in place to purchase land for this. Wait, they do. Its called GEM and to date, it hasn’t exactly been successful. I do agree that they city should reserve it for residential use, but can’t they just rezone it? That wouldn’t cost nearly as much. Also, in these tight financial times, they need to reign it spending so they don’t end up like the Beach.
