  1. How come the people who oppose these things never actually build anything of their own?

    Instead of wasting your time attacking other people, why don’t you get it together and build something yourselves?

    Do it as a co-op. Do it as a non-profit. Build what you want, down to the doorknobs.

    If you actually built something, you would learn how to assemble land, negotiate with a credit union and raise capital, design buildings, overcome local opposition, hire contractors, get the permits and rezonings — and get the damn job done.

    Co-ops have been doing this sort of thing for decades. Time for the complainers in the DTES to step up to the plate, and do the job themselves. At the end of the day, you will have accomplished something real.

    That would be a nice change.
