  • -Boost Tourism: How about ending the ‘bed tax’ rather than looking to expand it directly into web booking services (a heads up to any Newburghers offering ‘short term’ rooms)? Apparently the politicos have given up on real industrial growth.
    – Gentrification: The term doesn’t apply in the era of universal subsidies. I.e, the ‘Mid Housing’ shortage where in the correlated rise in price becomes an issue of ‘affordability’ rather than a symbol of economic growth. Apparently, having the cake and eating it too is the new norm. As per ‘Place Making’, Newburgh does a good job of relating its public spaces to the community with the only thing preventing people from walking is their own free will.
