Continuing this series of reporting the facts and backing it up with pictures can be very telling for the Capone Administration. You’ll find the Democratic Town Chairman call me a man of hate, full of venom and a liar when all I am doing is telling the truth about the State of our Town. Pictures don’t lie but men of his caliber do to remain in power.
Now as I wrote in my previous article about Economic Development one of the main keys to our success is a vital Frontage Road. The south part or the I-95 North side of the complex is in pretty good shape except for the 10,000 sq. Foot. Vacancy next to Home Goods but the north part or the I-95 South side is in shambles.
The East Haven Home Depot plaza is one of the only plazas in the State of Connecticut that houses a Home Depot with zero supporting stores. If you look at the pictures you will see that there are 10 vacant retail stores. I can envision a Barnes and Noble, Starbucks, Michaels Crafts occupying some of this space.
|Former Chinese Restaurant|
It is unreal to believe that not one business would want to be in the same plaza as Home Depot. The former Chinese Restaurant would be a perfect place for a Ruby Tuesday’s or Olive Garden. Instead of Mr. Hongo worrying about the tax abatement given to Car Max maybe he should help the landlord find tenants so we can make up the difference.
