Possible UA Land Acquisition


Recommended Posts

SUNY moves on plan for land


"fear a land-grab by the university will keep much of that prized land tax-exempt" as would any expansion other than on campus, which they're also opposed to.


"Still others suggest UAlbany should construct a dorm farther downtown." Oh yeah, great idea. Build three miles from where the classes are, add more buses to shuttle students, get ready for more T-U headlines about "the new student ghetto", crime, and noise at night.

First, these people chose to buy or rent next to a college. Albany isnt exactly an expensive place to live so if they dont like where they live...move.


Second, both councilmen sound like schmucks and are clearly small-time. They are worried about tax-exempt status? Are they simply morons? That land has been vacant, for the most part, for years. Any company coming in to put their business there is going to want two things in the contract: Money to tear-down/re-build or renovation, and tax-breaks to move their business onto the tax rolls.


But no...instead of using commonsense, these Councilmen dont realize this and are looking at the single tree and not the forest. The more UA expands...the bigger the teet for the locals to latch too economically.


They need to just end this fricken debacle and sell that entire swath of land to Albany and make it a big-time university. Let's hear "locals" complain when they are getting 2 billion in spending from the UA community.
