Target is coming to town!

The Chamber of Commerce sent out a notice late Friday about a major economic development announcement at 5 p.m. today, and I attended.  There are plans for a SuperTarget and associated shopping center in an ambitious project atop Pine Ridge.

It’s not a sure thing — there are some concessions to be made from the City, which will be briefly outlined at tonight’s City Council Meeting.  More details will be made available at a work session on January 29, which I can’t attend, since it’s scheduled for the same time as our January School Board meeting.

However, the sales tax revenue stream to the schools would be an enormous help, not to mention the availability of more goods locally.

Watch tonight’s meeting if you can.  I’ll try to blog it, if I can pick up the library’s wireless from there.

    Great, I’m gonna have to build on to the house to hold all the extra stuff coming to it now! Plus, get another job, just to pay for the trips to Target’.
