Thank God. It is finally upon us. A few considerations, before we get underway:
–The previous speaker sign-up numbers got blown out of the water, with the arrival of a large post-work Northcross crowd. Hopefully, the 45-minute limit still stands.
– Will Futrell even rear her head? She's been in and out all day, appearing to pose with Barrientos, but assistant CM Michael McDonald currently sits in the city manager's chair. Maybe the rumors of her recent vacation time burn-through are true.
Tammy Williamson will be "walking us through the site plan," says Laura Huffman. For now, Huffman is going through the ultra-lax zoning standards the original mall has.
"We did find a mistake which we made, which is notice," says Huffman. Goes over the "interested party" requirement detailed here
. Translation: we're sorry, Wal-Mart! Don't hit us!
"The site plan review was solid." TA-DOW!
Tammy Williamson is going over the proposed site plan. Ooh, pretty pictures!
Wow. Remember the Fed Ex speed talker? She's kinda like him.
Numbers everywhere. 375,000 total space at Northcross, only 269,000 currently used. Will be 424,000 square feet after Wal-Mart's built. Damn, that was hard.
