QCTimes Freight House article
Obviously anyone who's read this blog for more than 2 days knows that I support the Freight House market idea. I don't blindly support it, however, and I always had issues with the huge amounts of development that would come from it that were thrown around the press, with no real explanation.
However, I believe that the Freight House project was simply a different kind of incentive, as I've said before. People complain constantly that Davenport is unfriendly to businesses, but when we try to offer incentives (the public market) to get development (renovation of the Builders Sand and Gravel building across River Drive) people throw a fit.
I think we've sent a clear message how "friendly" we are to business around here.
