Redeveloping Long Reach Village is right direction to go [Letter]

I agree and applaud the decision by the Howard County Government to purchase Long Reach Village and to redevelop it. 

As a Columbia resident for over 42 years, who works and shops in this village, I have witness the decline of Long Reach Village as businesses have come and gone, many with no real commitment to the neighborhood.  This action by the County demonstrates a long-term commitment by the government to halt this decline and to revitalize the village and the neighborhood.

 This is the right direction!  Press on!
