Locally Grown: Why College City Beverage left Northfield

lg-businessChris Sawyer of College City Beverage left a comment on Locally Grown that was promoted to a full-blown story.  It was regarding the situation and the reasons behind CCB moving to Dundas:

We were looking for 20 acres of land. The city did not have 20 acres in one area(not the cities fault). Where there were 20 acres, the prices were all over the place. You contact someone one day the price is this. Contact them again the price may be that. It is not just a City Hall issue. It could be a landowner issue where the current landowners want to sell there land on one hand and the other they don’t. I don’t know why the published prices changed daily. Ask them. Don’t ask me I won’t tell you who they are.

Dundas welcomes commerce

Good for CCB. No need to beat your head against the wall. This is a depressed real estate market, and still some sellers are deluded into believing that still can name their price. Also, don't feel bad about not contributing to Northfield's tax coffers. Hell, they can afford to lose a surplus without reprisal. By the way, what's a small municipality hoarding a $4 million surplus anway?

Enjoy Dundas, the lack of red tape, officials who get it, etc.
