Being that the Monitor’s editor Garrison Wells and publisher Keven Todd weren’t here for the Boyer fiasco, it is understandable that they could fall for a developer promising pie-in-the-sky and the Monitor blasts it bold, top line, front page.
Let’s hope that whoever is evaluating these RFP responses for Trinity site is not as gullible this time around. What we learned from the Boyer experience is that developers are willing to say ANYTHING in order to get the land.
The last time we heard from a Boyer representative, he told us we were not a large enough market for a Target, Whole Foods, a large department store or even the lifestyles shopping center Boyer originally promised.
Now comes a new RFP process and we have a repeat performance of a developer promising Whole Food, Target, Dillards ... are you getting deja vu?
This Flint character from Lockhard Development, who claims he can bring Whole Foods, hasn’t even bothered to do any research about our town and previous attempts to develop Trinity or the hard lessons learned.
I love this statement by Flint, “...we’ve not actually done a deal with them (Whole Foods), but this would be a good market for a Whole Foods...”
I heard the laughter across town at that one!
