The Gel Pak Building
Morning Journal (and in the Chronicle Telegram as well) that the old Gel-Pak Building on Broadway will be renovated. Lorain County Health & Dentistry is going to receive $6.6 million of federal funds to fix up the old warehouse and use it as its main site to provide medical and dental care for low-income and uninsured residents of Lorain.
It's a odd choice to blow taxpayer money on in my opinion. (Sorry, this is one old building that I'm not too nostalgic about!)
$6.6 million seems like a lot of money to spend fixing up something that was going to be demolished anyway. I wonder what it would have cost to renovate some of these old school buildings that were torn down (or will be torn down)?
