Scrap Any Balloon Tract Plans
Well, I guess that's it. Since David Cobb explained to us in his My Word piece today we can't extend Waterfront Drive south to the Balloon Tract, the Balloon Tract will just have to stay as it is for eternity.
He mentions traffic congestion already being a problem down in that area and suggests any development on the Balloon Tract will only make it worse. Well... he specifies big box stores as what would make it worse, but we all know that increased congestion is inevitable no matter what is done with the Balloon Tract, assuming whatever's done attracts people.
Sorry to those of you that want affordable housing, government offices, or even a multiple use commercial center there. David Cobb has told us the way it is. Damn! I thought we had something going here.
He's does make a point about the wasted money, but I'd say that's a problem with government, not private development of the Balloon Tract.
