    This is an incredibly good peice of news for the central region. This type of developments creates huge employment opportunities, tax revenues etc. it enhances the portfolio of Grand Falls-Windsor and makes the town considerably more attractive to potential new residents and businesses. The town needs this type of devlopment to survive in the future. This is private industry working hand in hand with both Municipal and Provincial Government to enhance the lifestyle of the population. What is incredible to conceive is that people have the narrow mindedness to complain. The sad thing is, all of the posters that have made negative comments on this site are probably the first in line at the grand openings, grubby little hands out, looking for any freebie or cut price items they can get their hands on. As for John from NL's comment....put your money where your big mouth is, anti up (as Mr Wiseman has done) and work with the town of Grand Falls-Windsor to make your dream a reality. I am sure the that most of us would love to see another private development in the town. But...alas...sad fact I would suspect, your whining attitude far outweighs your bank account! Good luck Econo Malls with your project, and, when you get your stores open, I will be proud to support you by shopping in them.

    Just think, Mayor Woodrow French of Conception Bay South... all of this and more could have been yours.

    WoW! I know that I am not the first to commment on the posts that The Telegram allows, but it has reached the point of insanity. All people are doing is complaining about the same issues over and over again - STOP - In an area which lost it's only major employer to be able to rebound with new development which equals new employment + new tax revenue ... they should be appauded. The sooner that people realize that the economy in this province is ever changing - away from the fishery - which is not profitable - towards innovation, the better off they will be. Whatever field you are in - if you are not happy, not making enough money(or haven't in years), don't see a future, too smart/stupid - find something else - it is what everyone has to do. If people spent as much time trying to fix the problems instead of just complaining - this would be a much nicer place to live. (end of rant)

    Thumbs up for economic development, but big box stores and urban sprawl is a terrible thing.

    Anything that lets me avoid having to spend a king's ransome to fuel up my car so I can go and pick up a few groceries and a few other necessities is a bonus, I say. And besides, the big boxes employ local people. Why should I line the pockets of people in Big City if now the stores will be in or near my community?
    I aggre with poster number one.... CBS is missing out - BIG TIME.

    How often are we going to be fooled by pretty drawings! There is nothing concrete here - only a picture and a promise. Maybe that should be councils slogan. We are selling vacant land to a company that has shown no success in developing it - what makes it work now? It's clear that they have only been blocking development to favour the mall property. Why is the sale amount not disclosed? More secrets!

    Here's another news story for you - I am developing a 35 story office complex on Main St. I am HOPING to attract a major tentant like General Motors, Microsoft, or General Electric. There will also be a hockey rink and I HOPE to have the Maple Leafs as the home team. When do I get my picture in the paper with the mayor?

    Looks like beautiful downtown... Scarberia. Most other municipalities are trying to ESCAPE the ugly planning and architectural disasters of the 1970s, not replicate them.
