  1. During the increasingly long years of meetings, reports and frustration the City of Fort Bragg could not make any progress in developing the GP site. Nor did it discourage entities like the Skunk Train from bringing forth development plans. Wasn’t that the case until a few months ago the City of FB unceremoniously ended discussions Skunk Train team? You have to ask yourself why there is a sudden interest by the City of Fort Bragg in acquiring the GP property and why it has resorted to scare tactics to shape public opinion. Could it be that there are developers waiting in the wings to get favored treatment once the mill site is in the hands of Fort Bragg?

    • I believe that is the case here. A taking via Eminent Domain must include a public hearing and a submittal to the courts. The reporting to date has not indicated that either of these took place so I think you are right in believing that it was used to get GP to finally make a decision. It looks to me that GP and the Skunk Train negotiated and reached an agreement that both sides thought was fair.
