For Rent

The word on the street.

Or should we say...

The word on Freeport Rd. is there might be some new
tenants moving into the old Alcoa Research Center.

Our old pal, Mayor Guzzo, is being a bit tight-lipped on which
companies will be filling the void.

A void that has been there for more than 25 years.

Turns out, officials have been redeveloping the
building for over a year now.

First step is to get some companies in there, paying some rent.

The second step is for the city's redevelopment authority to buy
the buildings and land, in what will surely be a multimillion
dollar acquisition.

They are also trying to score some grant money.

We love grant money.

Hmmm, that gives us an idea.

We may have to start looking for state grants to run
area based websites.

That would be the shiz.

Back to the real story...

We hear that Mr. Mayor might be hosting an open house event
for the companies and everyone involved.

We'd love a golden ticket for that event.

Even if we don't get that invite, we are totally stoked about
this story and the possibility of new businesses and jobs
in our area.

Well done, to those involved.

We are behind you.
