Railroading Gainsboro


What’s wrong with the above picture?  Look closely  (at high magnification) at Gainsboro in  section 16 of the proposed zoning map.  Notice how it’s now part of downtown, despite the Gainsboro plan to reverse years of urban renewal, by developing  a village center.  And now the City of Roanoke wants to bring the proposed Social Security building complete with a fifty foot perimeter surrounded by a concrete berm (homeland security, ya know) to the last land on Henry Street which was supposed to be reserved for historic, educational and cultural uses.
