Keeping vision of a lifestyle center

-A A +A
By The Staff

I want to share my perspectives with you on the Trinity project.

Our county is very proud of our vision to become a vibrant community, attractive for our residents and for others who might come here.  Part of this vision is to develop a lifestyle center, where shopping can be pleasurable, social and fill many of our general retail needs and wants.

A conceptual plan was developed for this lifestyle retail center (and I’ll use this term to express what was intended, versus a shopping center or mall). The options were limited, and required relocation (the Airport Basin project), lease agreements (currently a memorandum of agreement between county and schools), and selection of a business developer (Boyer).  

That was in 2006, three years ago.  An artist rendition of the proposed lifestyle center was developed, and expectations were that a significant improvement to the retail capability would be added by a large anchor tenant. It appeared that Boyer was ready to make things happen as a willing participant to a strong public / private partnership development team.

However, things have not happened.  Rather than a tale of milestones met, it is a story of

“can’t do unless.”

There are several things that concern me.
