Selling Out Public Spaces
"A Presidential Commission recommends that the U.S. Postal Service obtain commercial appraisals of their post offices and land with the view of selling the property off to help pay its expenses. Aggressive real estate developers are eyeing public libraries and their urban branches with the aim of enveloping them under multi-use projects that include stores, cinemas and condos. In return, these tax sheltered developers will offer to pay for a portion or all of a new library structure."
