Hope he doesn't plan to put another fishing hole there. We need a real business there that pays more than $9.00 an hour.

How about some actual office space there is absolutely none in Princeton, you cant have anything on Mercer Street because there is no Parking and then theres the prostitutes. A fishing hole really!!!!

Actually, It's supposed to be a water park, with go carts and putt-putt, too. I can't wait til it's open!!! I'm taking lifeguard training now, so I can be certified and for sure get to work there!

A Dave and Busters would do better... a water park can only be seasonal. the pond would be a nice addition scenic wise. hope something with a more year round appeal goes there.

Nothing the matter with a classy fun arcade type resturant/sports bar like Dave and Busters'. Princeton could use a place like this. Just my opinion...lol. But a seasonal water park and go cart track..I don't think it would flourish. The one on Willowbrook lasted what about 2 years? Surely the city could bid for a better business and help the owner that is planning development. People need to think outside the box if we want good paying jobs to come here.
Pond

Charleston, WV

#11 Jun 26, 2012
We actually stopped by there and asked the guys that were working what is going on. It is going to be a fishing pond. They will be charging $8 to fish , or $20 to fish in tournaments. They did not mention anything about a water park , so I am not sure on that matter. And yup... it is the same guy who owned the catfish pond in Speedway. Sort of an odd place to put a pond , but maybe it will do better being closer to town...? I personally do not ever enter tourneys...they cost to much to enter.

Sure is a waste of space to just put a fishing pond there. Surely he could come up with a better idea. Oh well, it's his property. Might be more to the plan.

A pond is going to look so stupid there. Would be nice for office space/ strip mall style to open small local businesses away from Mercer street. Would be nice to see a place that employs many and pays over minimum wage, but the people who are skilled enough or smart enough for those jobs leave Princeton after graduation.

The citizens should say NO!!! the city shouldnt allow them to put a huge body of water right in a trouble spot for flooding.....thats a lot of land, and I know there was already a little pond there, but that should be filled up, and there should be busineses put there, not a useless f#cking fishing pond....makes me really angry I hope thats not the case ....so stupid

it won't be a Target or Home Depot. Not enough land for those big box stores. I sure hope something much better than a pond goes there. Surely the city won't make the same mistakes bluefield is making just to get some revenue.
