Syracuse New Times;11/21/2012, Issue 2169, p10
The author discusses the issues surrounding the abandonment of plans by Habitat for Humanity International Inc. to build a ranch house on one of the grandest streets in Syracuse, New York. Intervention by the Third District Common councilor Bob Dougherty is cited as one of the issues. The agency plans to have an off-street parking but the lot is too steep for driveway.
