I constantly see comments in stories like this about save this and save that and one would ge the impression that there are people out there who are into preserving these types of buildings. And there are. And these same people always seem to be under some misguided perception that the City of Phoenix agrees with their preservation minded attitudes. NOT SO! The City of Phoenix has no real interest in doing anything other than making money. Period. And if that means tearing down ninety year old buildings to do it, then believe me, the city is all for it! Personally, I think its a travesty to tear down such structures, but my personal believes, as well as anyone elses' bear no resemblence to the reality of the situation(s). In time the City of Phoenix will once again prove its ignorance and incompetence in the name of the almighty dollar. I see vacant lot after vacant lot in downtown and I just don't get it. WHY on earth would the City approve the demolition of such properties, let alone approve half of the inappropriate construction thats already been taking place downtown. Obviously no one with the city of Phoenix planning commission or zoning office has ANY taste whatsoever. They probably all live in tract homes in PV anyway. You can't expect anyone of those people to really care about something that they have no real connection to. Typical Phoenix. Tear it all down !!
