Fort Wayne officials (Democrat and Republican) will be announcing their most recent scheme to re-develop downtown Fort Wayne at the expanded Grand Wayne Center this morning.
The Grand Wayne Center is the PERFECT location for them to announce their most recent plan to develop downtown Fort Wayne.
The Grand Wayne Center was expanded by stealing private property from successful local businesses in the name of "progress."
The Grand Wayne Center loses money every year and has drawn little or no new business to downtown Fort Wayne. The only accountants who think the the Grand Wayne Center is making money every year are those accountants directly employed by Fort Wayne. ANY independent accountant quickly comes to the conclusion that the Grand Wayne Center is losing money each and every year.
Today our Democratic and Republican elected officials will unite in a massive public ceremony. Arm in arm we will see both Democrats and Republicans in elected office trumpet their new downtown project and they will once again talk about how this project will re-vitalize downtown Fort Wayne.
Rumor has it that this project will involve a downtown baseball stadium, another government subsidized hotel in downtown Fort Wayne, and some retail facilities.
Many of you will read my blog and you will think to yourself that I am against all efforts at downtown redevelopment. That is NOT true.
I am against projects that will NOT improve downtown and that will waste tax dollars. This project certainly will NOT do any of the things "they" will promise.
I will discuss this announcement later today after the announcement...
I have to go and work...
