This site currently has on it a mall owned by the same developer. This owner wanted to expand this mall.......(I believe evading his responisbility
of paying taxes on it was a primary motive to begin with)...and turn it into something, which some are referring to a "theme park". Well, this
"theme park, I believe will consist of a reasearch and developement center which the federal government has thrown alot of money towards, an
aqaurian, hotels, ect. ect......and it's like the NY Jet's new stadium when you try to figure out just how much money for it is coming from where.
30 business I believe will be asked to move,of course they don't want to have to negotiate with these businesses, that's what eminent domain is for
For some reason, I don't think Disney had this much government assistance when they built disneyland which is the comparison they are making while
trying to justify taking over the employment for all these stores and companies that will be on this site! And, well, I have never been to disneyland,
so I don't know..but do they have JC Pennys', McDonalds, ect. ect. there? WE were never told when they were talking about a research and
developement project that these employees would be hired by the developer or that the stores would have to be sharing their profits with them
either(on top of the lease I believe). This thing would get no where whatsoever without the government feeding it taxmoney, and it seems now, that
we are the ones building this guys personal financial kingdom!
I was just wondering if this was a lone case, or if it is going on elsewhere also.
