A very bad day for Pullman

The opening day of last year’s Pullman / Roseland Parade of Homes was, according to the residents I interviewed there, “a great day for Pullman.”

That great day was made possible, in part, by Park National Bank’s commitment to the community, reports Ninth Ward Alderman Anthony Beale in the video above. We recently reported that the non-profit development arm of Park National planned to build thousands of new homes in Pullman, extending the bank’s commitment.

As most of you probably know by now, Park National was one of the banks seized by the FDIC on Friday. That has to be very bad news for Pullman and other south side communities..
