"Two of the Commissioners are the same ones who "settled" for Walmart"

You have a true "glass half full" outlook on this one. It was underutilized farm land before. I like Bob Evan's.

Not only that MTO, what about the money for property taxes? I think Sugar Grove would want to increase their tax base. Face it Riggle, chinese junk is here to stay, might as well profit from it. People seem to buy it, or it would not be here!!

Created no incomming traffic? Have you noticed how many NY plates are in the parking lot to avoid the NYS taxes?

Two of the Commissioners are the same ones who "settled" for Walmart instead of trying to entice a Target to set up here. That would have been a regional draw that would have brought in considerable out of area business. Instead they were inpatient, settled for Walmart, which Bradford, Jamestown & Corry all have and it created no incoming traffic. Well at least they said no to the former state representatives son in laws proposal which was at a fraction of what they ended up selling the propoerty for.

How much more Chinese junk do we require? It is interesting to see the struggle on the part of County officials to get yet another Dollar Store in the County. Exactly what is going on?

Lets see, a kwik-fill, a hardware store, a bar, a grocery store, a car wash, a church,and a lumber yard. Did I miss something? I can't see where a Dollar General would compeate with any of these!

I live in Sugar Grove and would like to say that Julie Mader's opinions/viewpoints do not represent those of mine. Rather than using "we" language, she should us "I" language when making statements on record. Her use of language makes it sound like every resident is opposed to change - which is not the case. She may even benefit from taking an intro to economics course.

And the truth comes out in the end. Competition will hurt my business, so we dont need any new businesses. It is no wonder there is no tax base there. It is amazing how short sided these residents are, when if they actually had a few more businesses there they could draw more shoppers from New York that are already coming there for cheap gas.

oh no, not possible projects on the property. We can't have development it might ruin the County. Next Warren area person that cries to me how all the jobs are leaving and nothing is replacing them I'm just going to walk away from them while laughing. This is the reason why the County is in the shape it is in. Keep on fighting, just keep on fighting till there is nothing left.
