  • Rolling Mill Resident Offers Her Side of Development Saga | The Appalachian Independent
    is my rock the safe place I can go to when the world is not such a nice place Like Linus has his blanket I have my home But now my Safe Haven is under fire along with 63 other homes To say we were all blindsided by this mess wouldn t even touch it Let me explain Back in April my next door neighbors were moving out And they told me their landlord had told them the city was coming after the entire block of homes I just figured it was some kind of rumor I mean why would they be taking all of our homes So I never really gave any of this much thought at all May rolls around and I hear the LandLord was told they were taking his home because it was rundown and they were taking blighted properties I inquired about this at the City Hall in July I talked to the Mayor on Facebook and several city officials and they just replied that they had a bullseye on four homes in that area because they were eyesores I found this odd but who am I to judge So now we re on to the middle of August One of my neighbors stops by to see if any city officials had been by to see me And then he preceeded to tell me that they were planning on taking all of our homes HOW is this even possible I own my home and my loan they basically made me get is always paid So I take to FB and start asking questions I messaged the mayor he basically tells me to be ready their coming and to know what I need to leave You have got to be kidding me I talked to these same people less then a month before this not one informed me that they had a bullseye on my home too So after doing some research my friend who is a real estate agent gives someone my number that s in this group called the CEDC and tells them to call me They told her that they had already talked to me which was so far from the truth So this man calls me and tells me there s no need to stress or worry because they were not doing anything yet but the city would probably be taking the homes for a project sometime in the future I could go get my home appraisal and get back to them Because IF they were to go thru with this project they would offer me the tax assessment which was only 30k and had dropped overy 7 000 from last year And a extra 5k for moving expenses I was also told that I lived in a crime ridden area which pretty much sums up most of the Cumberland area I am not afraid to walk out of my house at 3am it s not a bad area at all And

  • Arrogance, Ignorance, and Lies- How the City Government is Run in Cumberland | The Appalachian Independent
    engage in economic development To complete this project Baltimore Ave to Lamont St Oldtown Road as many as 500 700 homes could be torn down Someone do the math on City and County taxes lost by destroying so many homes Surely there are better alternatives Since this current administration has been in place lies have been established to make citizens believe that drugs and criminal activity are so rampant in these targeted areas that the only option is to tear everything down Unfortunately it seems that many actually believe this Here is the problem rather than hold slumlords and unsavory landowners responsible for who they rent to the City would have you believe that it is better to destroy all the affected neighborhoods and replace them with minimum wage small businesses Moreover the City leaders would have you believe that the CSX portion of the area surrounding Martins is so overpriced that it is not economically feasible to pursue it The reality is that there is no compelling evidence to indicate that the current administration has ever made a serious attempt to negotiate a deal on that plot of land Just think for a moment how many businesses could be put in that area without impacting a single home It s time for the people of Cumberland to fact check the City government and the Economic Development Corporation In no time at all you ll see the arrogance the ignorance of the law and the lies that have been told to us all for a long time Dr Think About It Last Updated on Friday 20 November 2015 07 49 Comments 3 Location Location Brian Hedrick Thursday 19 November 2015 23 48 The CSX property isn t right next to I 68 It would make a great pad for Home
