Vacant Lots Abound In Uptown And Beyond

First the Paramount:, now the Simm's Brush Factory, and the former site of a pawn shop on the corner of Waterloo and Union.

In light of all these recent examples, some might say Saint John's looking like a prime location to shoot a disaster movie. Mayor Mel Norton tells CHSJ News the key to rehabilitating all these empty lots is obvious--economic development.

The Mayor says he hasn't heard about any plans for the site on Union, but one thing is certain: we want to see buildings and people, not more parking lots.
