Ray McInerny, Sr., and his wife Jean, have lived in New Berlin for 32 years. A retired graphic artist, he now paints for his own enjoyment. This blog will attempt to present items of general interest to his New Berlin neighbors.
Although I opposed the Plan Commission decision of May, 2010, on use of the City Center in its latest vote, isn’t a sign I hate or dislike those who made the decision. If reasonable people cannot disagree and find a common ground to solve the problems of this proposed project chaos will reign
I personally find the architecture along National Avenue on the tacky side. And the design for foot and auto traffic is less than useful. The emptiness of the units that once occupied businesses is testimony to that statement. This was established long before the present administration and Plan Commission of 2010. All the finger pointing in the world won’t solve a thing at this point.
The issue isn’t racism. The issue isn’t bigotry. The issue isn’t color. The issue isn’t ethnicity.
The issue isn’t poor people. The issue isn’t working people. The City Center is the issue.
New Berlin citizens are concerned over the fate of the City Center. That’s it. And nothing else. Our concerns are related to the City Government sliding away from the original plan for this area.
