Editorial: The ShopRite Tech Park?

All the same, we would hope Nicolla is being more forthcoming with members of the IDA in private than he is in public because if not, we find ourselves blind, trusting in what he himself has referred to as a sales pitch and doling out public money to what are pretty common retail users — about $200,000 worth this time around.

Even with the required 80 percent/20 percent split on primary and secondary floor space (a sound idea, by the way), there’s nothing to stop Vista from becoming a small strip mall in a big field. That’s a point our leaders should keep in mind when Mr. Nicolla comes calling with his next sales pitch.

In short, let us hope Vista becomes the shining star of a new Bethlehem, and not the most heavily taxpayer subsidized grocery store east of the Mississippi.
