Glebe Park Loan Approved



Earlier we reported the deferral of the emergency bridge loan for Glebe Park. But this past Saturday, Alexandria City Council re-considered the loan and approved it, allowing the project to go forward. Here's the story as reported AlexandriaNews.org and The Alexandria Times.

From an earlier Alexandria Gazette article:
The $15.7 million Glebe Park redevelopment is slated to replace 40 public-housing units in the existing Glebe Park property in Arlandria and 44 units from the James Bland property in the Parker Gray neighborhood. Because proceeds from the sale of the market-rate lots at Bland are needed to finance the redevelopment at Glebe, the credit crunch has created a backlog in both neighborhoods. And city officials said that without the loan, both redevelopment efforts would be stalled indefinitely.

Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.Abcya games || kizi || abcya4
