Time may have passed us by

-A A +A
By Ralph Damiani

As the county and the schools are more and more at odds over how the deal for Trinity Place reads, we are more and more concerned that it will never happen.

Reports from every business corner that you want to go to say that vacancies in malls and shopping plazas are rising fast nationally. The reports note that the average vacancy rate at neighborhood and community malls rose to 8.2 percent, up from 7.3 percent in 2007.

This is the highest level since 1995.

It is just this kind of facility that the county has been talking about since 2006 putting here. But the world today is in a different reality than that of 2006.

If you are concerned - as we have been - and go to the county to ask about what is going on, you are told that you must speak to Assistant County Administrator Anthony Mortillaro.

Only, he does not tell you much.

He will tell you things are progressing, but nothing is finalized and they are still talking.

For three years we are still talking?

Now, we understand there is not all that much he can say, that you do not negotiate in public. True enough. But after three years, all that can be said is they will get back to us?
