Editorial: East Side brewery a good investment

editorial(new)

The East Side is slowly coming back and could really use some help.

A multi-million dollar development with a new brewery is just the kind of catalyst they need.

City Council unanimously approved the deal and it has support from the city's planning commission.

But a neighborhood group just sued to stop it, claiming the site should only be used as a park.

Nobody wants to take designated parkland away from a neighborhood.

But, that land was never dedicated as a park.
This development means greater economic returns for the East Side.

Blue Star, Pearl and the Houston Street corridor are all examples of areas that were revitalized with responsible development like this.

Efforts to stop the East Side brewery project are misguided and counterproductive.
