I wanted to learn your opinions about the proposed use of this land. As a resident, I am concerned that the "skateboard park" will not bring economic development to the area. I would like to see more office space for small businesses, etc. Skateboarding parks, although a great offering for youth recreation, will not help the village in stimulating our local economy and competitiveness with similar rural areas for new business and technology. Why not offer free broadband internet access and other inexpensive technological perks to offer to small businesses? Just my opinion, what do you think?

I don't know how big an area we are speaking about but I am sure it could be converted into a small industrial park with an office building as someone else mentioned. Could add a professional building also if property is large enough. This could possibly stimulate the local economy a bit. I remember when the "Tannery" was enough to keep the village a thriving exciting place to live.

I found some more information on the sire renovation at http://cfpub.epa.gov/supercpad/cursites/csiti...
Interesting stuff, I noticed in the detailed report that there may be three retail buildings with plenty of parking. Now that I know all of the information, I'm really looking forward to the completion of the site!
