John Bailey, the Republican challenger to Liz Bobo for the House of Delegates in District 12B, has come out in support of General Growths proposed redevelopment plans for Columbia Town Center.
"This is a thirty year process. For Howard County residents currently in their 20’s and 30’s, of which I am a member, this means that at completion they will be in their 50’s and 60’s. They will be able to witness the creation of a new Columbia and enjoy all the amenities and opportunities that come along with a vibrant downtown. Improved public transportation, the ability to walk and bike around Columbia, and the cultural and recreational opportunities that will enrich the lives of Howard County residents. This is an exciting time for Columbia. It is the dawn of a new chapter for Howard County, a chapter that will take us into the future as a regional leader in business opportunity and job creation."
I believe Liz’s position on this is closer to Bridgets.
