Winning Bidder Not A Favorite With West Side

October 5th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

The Allegany County Commissioner's meeting was filled with citizens not happy with the choice of developer for the housing project on the land where Allegany High School once stood.  Six citizens spoke against the decision to go with D.R. Horton Builders, mostly concerned with quality of building and the absence of intergenerational housing and greenspace concepts.  Citizens who spoke also asked for more due-diligence in future projects including community listening sessions for input and to avoid being "hoodwinked" by companies who have not done research into the community.
