Initial Report on Lawsuit against HBG Mayor’s Senior Advisor
Harrisburg, PA – The Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority (HRA) & HBG Economic Development Director Jackie Parker is accused of bypassing the legal planning process in order to steal property in Allison Hill. Harrisburg officials violated the Urban Redevelopment Act of PA.
In a letter sent to Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority solicitor Stu Magdule, a Harrisburg resident presents the solid case against the illegal processes. It is detailed how Harrisburg City coordinated a subversion of private property rights and ownership, by using the Brownfield planning fund.
A private attorney counciling the citizen believes this could spark a grand jury investigation. The call is for the United States attorney general to intervene.
The letter was certified and sent to the following recipients:
Eric Papenfuse, Neil Grover, Bryan Davis, George Payne, Harrisburg City Council, Harrisburg Planning Commision, Dauphin County Commissioners, John DiSanto, Edward Marsico, Josh Shapiro, Jeffrey Sessions
City Council and the planning commission were sent certified copies of the letter because HRA kept them in the dark
