  1. What are they thinking.

    They act like this is such a great deal. Bet the old building is full of asbestos and is a multi million dollar liability, not to mention the company getting rid of the tens of thousands of dollars in taxes every year and writing off the donation on thier taxes to Uncle Sam. The demolition costs will be hundreds of thousands if not more than a million dollars. The Old Wilson plant next door is over 90k square feet and it remains only a storage facility for other plants overflow and has not been sold after many years of trying. Another smooth move from Mayor Bradley and chamber who appear as lost as an Easter egg when it comes to industrial development. Anybody seen the environmental report/assessment? Should be public record if one was competed
