3/4s to a million dollars and up to two years to study the environmental impact of a plan, yet to be developed, intended to fix up an already developed, though outdated and aging, stretch of a city--this town deserves itself! Given the City's share of sales & property tax, how long will it be before all the new businesses this is supposed to attract generate $1 Million?
