I have never understood this project. If there really was a marketable use for the property, someone would have bought by now. Hell, it took them 25 years just to get the Double Tree built.

What held it up at first I think is that they were trying to have it done all at one time, but now they are breaking it up into its individual parts. What would have them do with the area?

I would have prefer if the city never bought the property to began with because knowing Bay City, the land is either going to sit empty for years, or it's going to be rushed and end up a big mess.

I don't know. I'd rather see anything other than the stone piles that were there previously. They were not the best thing to see as an entrance to downtown from the south.

At Monday night's meeting they transferred it to a public/private partnership that will be lead by Art Dore and Paul Rowley. They are both big Bay City businessmen.
