The city council bent over and took it from behind from about rich families at the golf course, that is why it won't be in front of the NEW food city that can't happen now. Thanks city council, guess you don't need the sales tax.
Oh Please

What was the point in building a new Food City anyway? The one that is down there is not that old and plenty big enough. That would be another big eyesore in town. Another empty building just so there could be a bigger better one I don't think is necessary.

Because Food City wants it, that is why, plain and simple. They are on the wrong side of the road for traffic traveling home at the end of the day, the store is too small for their new designs, they would hire more people with a bigger store.....In other words, the few people at the golf course and select members of city council have screwed the rest of us out of very nice retail development where there is now an abandoned eye sore. In other words, If I was the developer, I would now put whatever fits in the zoning there to make me the most money, regardless of what people say. I'd say subsidized housing should fit the bill nicely. You can't say we don't need more of that!
Wondering why

Please explain what the golf course has to do with it? And what rich people's homes would it effect?

That's what I'm wondering, but it is the golf course people that showed up and spoke at EVERY city council and planning commission meeting. It wouldn't affect them at all, but they claim it would. They are saying flooding and mexican and fire and brimstones blah blah blah. More rich people trying to hold the rest of us back, nothing new. If you have been to ANY city council meeting in 3 months, you would know who they are. They are now the ones with the label "we stopped jobs". Hope they like it!
Sure sure

The Bojangles was never on a questionable site. It can still go there period. If the developer chooses not too that is his decision. This has never been about rich families. In fact, most of these residents are retirees. Stop spreading the lies. Their concerns were real. The developer couldn't swing enough votes and he lost. Period. He had made many threats like the one above (matter of fact I think it's him making these on topix) and the residents most affected stood up for their legal rights. His job numbers are overinflated (look at the press release on the other store-those numbers never materialized) and he irresponsibly announced this BEFORE he had approval. He used the paper as his tool. If anything he should apologize for being part of the good ole boy network that has had thus city in its back pocket for decades. Things are changing for the better. Look out for him to try and swing city council in his favor at the next election.

Right now it looks like a moonscape with a bunch of trash and broken up concrete there. It was rich golf course retirees, sorry. I said people, but lowlifes who take food and jobs from others can't be called people, we should call them retirees with nothing better to do. Many have stated publicly that this would allow "mexicans to walk through their yard." I'm sorry but because you are a racist, but I don't care what nationality uses a grocery store, tax money is tax money. No one would have complained if it were a Target. Good thing those site locators read the news. They would never try to locate a good store here with the political disaster we have.

The developer should sue everyone involved if he wasn't granted his legal rights based on people's opinions. I wish someone would walk to their doors and force them to update those 1970's split levels they cherish so much at the golf course. See how they like it when someone tells them what to do on their property.Especially since they are so good at dictating what other people do on theirs.
Sure sure

The developer hadn't purchased the property yet so his legal rights were not denied. He's welcome to sue anyone he wants but he will lose. The law was appropriately applied. End of story. No one took jobs away but the developer for refusing to move the store a few hundred feet. Blame him. His overinflated, good ole boy ego cost him and the citizens dearly.
HMM

And every one wonders why we have to drive to Knoxville for a good place to eat or shop. It is the same old mentality, not in my back yard. They city motto is "a city always expanding". it should be changed, "lets go backwards"

It doesn't make any since at all, the homes behind the propety are not large homes or do I beleive they are all retired, or are the "country club rich people " if fact I wonder how many are even members of the Contrry Club, sounds like Why has some other motive with this thread, my sister and brother-in law are members, I'll ask them if the Country Club has any problem with it, bet not. I believe the "Mexicans walking through their yard" is just plain bunch of crap also.
Yeah

It amazes me-the Morristown mentality. People get so damned frigging excited about some stupid bun, biscuit, artifical meat place. What a big city we are!

The Bojangles website shows the lot across from Captain D's as the address.

I could care less, but like another poster, I want good restaurants and shopping. Those people live in COUNTRY CLUB ESTATES. I could care less about the dried up ran down golf course. These are a LOW number of retirees that aren't even from here stopping progress for the rest of us. With no new sales tax increases, our tax bills will increase. I for one will remember the city council members who voted against it and will encourage others not to vote for them next time. I will also remember all of those faces speaking out at city council, especially the ones who didn't even live in this county! Those retirees rounded up some friends from surrounding ares who didn't even know the area they were talking about. I'm sure they will just go to Jefferson County with the new store anyway, I guess I can take my tax dollars there.
hmmm

If you think food city was going to create more jobs, you're fooled. Yes, they would've hired more for the grand opening then they would start getting rid of a lot of those employees. The store on west a.j. already has close to 100 employees that's roughly what the new store on jaybird rd has. One thing is for sure..don't bank on many jobs from food city...they work their employees to the bones, pretty much as bad as any factory in town. The dumpster at the new smells horrible. Personally I wouldn't want that in my backyard.

If you only have a high school diploma, I'd say factory or retail work is good work. It is better than sitting at home getting a check. If you don't want to smell trash, go get an education at a 2 year or 4 year school. Really simple.
