I am cynical enough to wish that this idea, even in jest not be "put out there".
Some idiot developer is surely salivating as we read, and there are those among us greedy enough to make it so.
Wow. I am so relieved that this was an April Fools joke but to be honest, I truly wouldn't put it past the greedy money grubbing developers.
Oh,thank godde. Had me worried for a brief moment.
OMG. The folks who live in the north end really are living up to their reputation. Only someone who started their day smoking way too much herb could possibly have bought this nonsense. I expected the author of the article to be Sid Finch!
That initial feeling you had when you thought the article was true and inevitable... that's what gentrification feels like. That's probably what it feels like to live in a trailer by the river in Garden City right now.
Are you sure this isn't happening? When I first moved to Boise, it was into a sweet old house turned into apartments one house down from Goodies. My sister had lived is almost every apartment in the building for the last ten years when I arrived. My little niece started crawling and maybe even walking above Hyde Park. The house was condemned so we all moved. Years later the house had been fixed up. I love the north end. It is a magical place. I really hope this is an April fools prank. It makes me sick to think of tearing down those trees and ok homes.
You got me, BW. The irate-o-meter was headed off the charts. Very well played.
Such a good April Fools joke that I am still only half believing that it is and super worried about what horrible s*** they have planned. Near heart attack. I hope the response letters the local politicians etc. get from this are a small clue to crap storm if this was ever attempted.
The most horrifying thing about this story is how many commenters believe it's real.
why don't we tie this bastard to a pole and then we can all take turns having a swing with a baseball bat?
Oh crap, I thought I was the April 1st jokester! Hah, Hah.
No, No, NO! North End Neighborhood Assoc, where are you?
Boy, I fell for this hook line and sinker--should have skipped down to the comments first!
Most of the states that have a high percentage have free community college for their residents. This makes a HUGE difference! If student's had a chance to start college without the big debt and then go on and finish with a low college student loan- you would see a lot more students attend college. No doubt! I personally will spend the next 16 years paying off my student loans 25 years total for a job that makes less than my son is making not going to college. Sometimes- that student loan debt is just such a huge burden that it affects students attending.
Hook LIne & Sinker! ;-)
This better be some sick April fools day joke because that fuckin' monstrosity has no place there.
Isn't part of the plan to put an Olive Garden at 8th/main as well?
Ah i should've known it was a joke by the inflammatory statements made by a council member in the story. Not funny, blood pressure went through the roof!
So how do we stop it? Because no way in hell is this happening.
This is an April Fools story?
