It is a shame that after all these years, another place to drink and eat could not have been placed there! Use to have great Pizza too; great night spot in Alamo.

Pretty good bet that if the quality of life tax passes, every dime will go toward this "pet project"
If they list on the ballot exactly where every dime of this money is going I might give it a second thought. Otherwise the answer is NO!

So how many jobs were lost because CVS pharmacy bailed? Construction jobs, clerks, ect ect ect . Somthing underhanded is at work here. I predict some how in the next year this museum thing will go away and a property deal will be brokered padding pockets. This is just another slap in the face to we the people.

Nothing underhanded here. The city originally promised to give the TBHS two years to seek funding, then reneged on that promise, and then turned over the building to the county for that 2 year time frame. Again, CVS needs the entire block and the entire block is not for sale. CVS would have never gotten that site for that reason.
hmmm

I believe it was one year for funding. Now it is two. I guess that whole block will just remain ugly now. I would have liked a nice restaurant and bar there instead of a museum.

No it was always two years for funding. Attend a city commission meeting and learn the truth before spouting out bullshit. CVS is neither a restaurnt nor a bar.

In a city that could really use jobs in this poor economy you silly people keep turning away the good fortune that WANTS to come and help you out! No new pharmacy and no high paying drilling jobs on the Mesa! No wonder your children move away as fast as they can as soon as they can! You get what you deserve. Enjoy your old run down building and the dirt on the Mesa!

Again idiot, CVS would need the entire block which isn't for sale.
Are you always this stupid or is today special?

Aren't there other places CVS could go? Surely we have enough room somewhere.

CVS only builds across the street from Walgreens.

Actually, I've seen plenty of places where there was no Walgreen's in sight, but there was a CVS. I'm sure those that live on the North end of town would appreciate having a business closer to them.

The current (and stupid) business model for CVS is to build across from Walgreens. In Las Cruces CVS evicted 2 thriving businesses just to build across from their competitor. CVS shows they don't care about the community they are building in, but only care that they are across from Walgreens. I wouldn't want a such a crass and greedy corporation in my town.

The citizens and so-called leaders of Alamogordo are so short sighted they all belong in that blind school. There is plenty of land for CVS to build if somebody would aggresively pursue them. A tax break for all new business would be attractive to companies. Open that Mesa for drilling with strict rules and monitor the progress daily. High paying jobs would be created and money would flow into this community. But then again you have people like "No I know the truth" running this town. What a bunch of idiots. Stay poor and have your children move away Alamogordo......

CVS didn't evict anybody. They buy people out. It's the American way. You can make your point without lying. Can't you?

You dont know crap, do you? CVS was offered other land and tax incentives. They passed. There were insistent upon getting the real estate at 10th and White Sands.
Again, easy for you to talk shit when you don't know shit.

Look at the past tax breaks this city gave the Cookie Factory, 1-800-flowers, not a good record for the city and the citizens. If a business wants to move here, they will.
Open the mesa for drilling and rely on the 1872 mining act to protect the mesa, no thanks...And since you live here too, you are free to pack up and drive away, and take your high paying job too.

Post where the location of the land was and what tax incentives they were offered. This will be easy for you to do seeing how you know the truth.
