I just re-read Chris Morris' Tribune article about Jack Bobo's bid to purchase land downtown to build a new plaza aka. Scribner Place Phase II.

I know the plans included a parking garage but nothing was mentioned this time about the city kicking in $12,000,000 to make it happen. Maybe Mr. Bobo and Mainland Properties LLC realized New Albany didn't have that kind of cash lying around.

Mr. Malysz promised to go over the plans "with a fine tooth comb", but it still makes me wonder why a company would want to invest over a million dollars here and now. Do they know something the rest of us don't?

At any rate the thought of a massive building project with all the jobs that would come with it sounds like a dream come true to me. I just hope they can work things out with the EPA.
