The Times Ledger takes some controversial positions on land use this week.
First, they support the idea of removal of current businesses in the Iron Triangle in favor of a "sprawling mixed-use development":
"This should create new jobs and economic opportunity."
Destroying viable businesses in order to create new businesses. Makes sense.
In the meantime, they lament over the High cost of progress that business owners in Jamaica may pay.
"The GJDC must make certain that these small business owners are not steamrolled in the name of progress."
Finally, they tell the NYC Council to Get out of the way of Walmart's plan to set up shop in NYC:
"We see no reason why Wal-Mart or any store should be required to kiss the rings of the union bosses or the paternalistic City Council. If the Council wants to change the rules, it should do so for all businesses, not just stores selected by the Central Labor Council."
