The City Council, acting as the Community Redevelopment Agency board, tonight is expected to discuss the purchase of property that would be used for a new shopping center.
City officials have been negotiating the price and terms of a deal with the owner of GT Pit Stop near Barton Road and Michigan Avenue.
The site is slated to become a shopping center anchored by a Stater Bros. and other stores. GT Pit Stop is expected to move nearby in the city as part of the deal, officials said.
Council members plan to discuss the matter in closed session at 6 p.m. at the Civic Center, 22795 Barton Road.
When did the Council specifically Direct the City Manager/Redelopment Agency Director to involve the City or CRA in the negotiations between two private businesses, or individuals?
Why is this City Business Done behind Closed Doors. Citizens should have the right to hear the negotiation from start to end.
If the Deal is to swap a Piece of GT CRA City Owned Property for the Pit Stop, the Citizens should have input to the Deal Before it is done Behind Closed Door Negotiations.
