Over the past ten years, if not more, I have attended meetings of the South Worcester Industrial Park (SWIP). I don't go anymore? Why?
Three years ago SWIP put a pacel of land that the city assembled and decided to award the 13 acre parcel to Pharmashpere for $1 when an abutter offered 50K. Myself I liked the 50K offer from the abutter versus the one dollar offer?
I even asked a represenaitve from the City of Worcester what weight our input, the neighbohood who met monthly or whenever a meeting was called, had? Answer--none! No BS the representative told us we had no input. So why do I take time out of my day to help SWIP move forward? I don't anymore and Pharmasphere has yet to take title to the property for $1.
Why do I bring this up? The City of Worcester comes up with $40,000 to give out in areas that I feel myself and others can have an input as to how it should be packaged and nobody asks us???
