I attended the June 5, 2012 City Council meeting and listened to a presentation by two individuals interested in moving a business into Zion. The presentation was very well done and showed true enthusiasm for the potential within the Zion area.
It was also mentioned that 5-10 people would be employed with the goal of expanding beyond. It was stated that no retail sales would occur and that it would be a production type business only.
The response that was given by several members of the City Council was both insulting and without merit as a business plan was not even provided.
Help me understand how this works in Zion, Invest millions in a risky baseball venture and that warrants full support. Allow construction and modification of a building prior to issuing any Permits for a Haunted House venture (With strong opposition from the community) but based on a 5 minute presentation several members will never vote for it.
Please do me a favor as a tax paying citizen in this community! Donít vote on my behalf !
Letís not send a message to other businessís that may be interested in relocating that we do not wait to see their business plans before we cast a dissenting vote.
