Mixed Feelings Regarding MCC Moving to Kodak Site
The following responses were posted to our story “Rochester Mayor not Happywith MCC Decision to Move to Kodak Site” [hp://www.minorityreporter.net/fullstory/fullstory.php?id=432]I think we have to look at who is driving this decision. There is plenty of meto study this from all angles and take public input if a true desire was for theCounty government to do what was best for the students, faculty and taxpayers.Obviously this is not their goal. So what is? Trying to restore the health of thedowntown area seems to be important to the City government right now.But while the mayor sees MCC as an asset in this plan, the county legislatorsapparently do not. Could this be just another racist aempt by predominatelywhite power brokers to remove large numbers of students of color who makethem feel unsafe from the downtown area? Is the plan to sanize the area inhopes of luring white suburbanites back to the center city for commerce andentertainment. One has to wonder.
~Patricia Mannix 
I do not understand why they want to move MCC campus to State street.Although that part of State Street looks nice and all , but what about theneighborhood behind Kodak. This neighborhood has had no aenon acceptto put a new Soccer stadium in while the neighborhood slowly depreciates anddeteriorates. Will this campus be the start of rebuilding a neighborhood thatscreams for aenon? If not , then leave it where it is and deal with makingdowntown beer.
~ Gregory Bouie
As a city tax payer and home owner, I am very concerned about agreementsmade without any “secured” state funds. An “I’ll see what I can do” meansabsolutely nothing at the bank! Before locking in the Kodak site, the fundingshould have been secured.On the other side of the coin is the repeated promises from Sibley owners andthe City of Rochester to make the Sibley site safe for students! I have seen thepolice trailers, mounted patrol, police ocers on segways, and foot patrol andwe sll have the same safety issues. People deserve the right to feel and besafe while in our downtown area. My personal opinion is that be police justdispersing students and not arresng the trouble makers, just allows them tostart another problem around the corner or the next day. People say we can’t just arrest everyone especially our youth, but obviously the amount of resourcesand money we have thrown that way hasn’t worked either. Do I have an answer,NO - but obviously this was one of the major points of MCC wanng to leave thesite. How did that work out for us?
~ Luis Aponte
Luis, I am an elderly European American woman who spent a great deal of mein front of the Sibley building registering voters and shop at the Rainbow store.There is nothing to be afraid of. I have never been treated in any inappropriateway.
~Carol Aragon
Just what I was thinking Pat. Once again we’re catering to irraonal fear ratherthan educang… very disappoinng.
