Friday, August 17, 2012

Residents have been stuck in a state of uncertainly for years now as the city and various developers have planned to buy and/or take their homes for commercial development. That uncertainty has had a devastating impact on the neighborhood as some residents let their properties deteriorate (understandable in the situation) while others tried valiantly to maintain their homes and the historically African-American neighborhood they love. The Show-Me Institute sat down with residents to discuss the situation in Hadley Township in this series of videos.
