“Ever since I’ve been a kid, they’ve been trying to develop it,” Mayor David Roefaro said.“We’ve got to clean this up once and for all.”

Yes Dave, and ever since I was a kid which wasn't too long ago I remember all the talk about the Chip Plant which was going to provide some higher paid skilled employment so I wouldn't have to move out of the area away from my family. I was excited about all the talk. Foolish me!

And this...

“Any place where there's water, there's people,” said Roefaro, who predicted $100 million in investment to develop the area.“But you've got to do it right.”

Really, ANY PLACE? I just took a leak on a tree in my backyard. Does that count?

Every year like clockwork the OD recycles the same old headlines about the same old projects that never come to fruition. Most of the projects never even get to a serious planning stage. Recycled crap, that's all these press pieces are.

These people are garbage. I'm sure Roefaro and Arcuri would salivate at the chance. The article is nothing but more words from the usual morons patting themselves on the back really. Destito? C'mon you fat pig is this your claim to fame?
Roefaro is dying to "take charge" od development I'm sure.
Here's the best part: The place they are talking about is a floodway! Trinkets to distract you and give you hope from the people who drove all the livelyhood out of there.
You people should really just take a look at these clowns.
