Council to consider funding shovel ready industrial sites

In a letter earlier today (March 30) to interim Greensboro City Manager Denise Turner Roth, Assistant City Manager Andy Scott outlined three proposals submitted to the city for financial assistance from private developers.

"We have received three proposals for assistance in developing shovel ready industrial sites," he wrote. "Council will call a public hearing at its meeting on April 3, 2012. The sites will be considered and an award made at the April 16, 2012, Council meeting. Over the next three weeks, City staff will evaluate the proposals based on "

The first and largest request for funds listed is from the Carroll Companies for Birch Creek Business Park, costing $5,360,766. Simpson Schulman & Beard submitted one for Rock Creek Center costing $1,615,00 and the third came from Samet Corporation for $2.5 million for Triad Business Park.

At a special council meeting March 27, Scott told council there were four new sites the city could look at for shovel ready development, naming the three listed above as week as 310 acres at Reedy Fork Ranch. It is unclear why only three sites are included in his letter.

Scott's letter was included in the city's IFYI report released this afternoon.

Just for the record: I am very much opposed to this.

Shovel ready = technicality...i find it offensive to even entertain such a large amount of cash for a piece of dirt outside of city limits, with no real plan for annexation, with no real defined industry, and NO REAL JOBS...
(In my opinion), I find it even more offensive that the Carroll properties are even on the list considering recent divisive self serving events.
It will be interesting to see who gets it and under what conditions...
Samet @ least has a great available track record for minority participation...so if council is really serious about the whole MWBE thing, this will be a verifiable test...do you reward the guy who sues council members for not getting his way...do you reward the guy who threatens to sue everyone if he does not get his way, or do you give it to the other guy ...

You want public funds, then, at least, try and better the community you are benefitting from.
PS getting our money does not buy your our respect or servitude.
