Sometimes, it’s hard to see the forest for the trees
Fourteen years ago, I sat in on a city council meeting in which the mayor used a portion of his part of the meeting to publically berate the city’s economic development director.
A neighboring town had just announced it was going to have a major development, but the deal was very preliminary. This community had a site of its own, twice the size for the same price, located on prime real estate just off Interstate Highway 80.
So, the economic development director took the approach that nothing’s a done deal until there’s ink on paper. The mayor, instead, thought it was a less-than-neighborly approach, particularly when the neighboring town was both bigger and far more aggressive about economic development.
