Tough Business Climate in the 'Burg

2008 has not turned out so well for the city at getting new businesses inside the city boundary.

Recently, two plans for bringing businesses to the city have met with some challenges. First, a large woodworking and millwork business that the city was incentivizing, decided there were better options in their native Spotsylvania. Then the city couldn't approve tourism incentives for Blue and Grey due to their location in the industrial park. Blue and Grey has not stated where they plan to look next, or if they are still considering the industrial park. Their permit is still on the schedule for a planning commission meeting that was advertised in the paper this week.

Maybe there is hope that something good will come of the Downman house. Council met in closed session but so far no word or announcements.

Here's to hoping that the Ale House of Fredericksburg is somewhat on schedule.
