It is one thing for Home Depot to buy a piece of property and develop it in the inner city, but it's entirely another when PDC assists them and uses public funds to create a space for them. Where is the help for the small business owner that has created the "home improvement district" in central eastside? Let's let the little guys get something really cool going on over in the eastside and then let's help a cut-throat discount mega-corporation buy in for a discounted price and then ultimately hurt the little guys by taking their business away. What a terrific city we live in!
We need a huge public outcry to stop this from happening.
Imagine biking over the Burnside Bridge only to be greeted by Home Depot!
