Can We Have $500,000 Please?

by The Editors on April 27, 2008

Last week The Carlsbad Village Improvement Partnership asked the City for $500,000 spread out over three years so they can “revitalize the city’s downtown core,” according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Frank Hutchins, a corporate banker and president of the partnership, asked the council Tuesday night for “seed money” to get it established – $200,000 in each of the first two years and $100,000 in the third year. . . . Councilmen Matt Hall and Mark Packard sat out the discussion because they own property downtown.

That means only three people have to agree. If some of the money goes toward more closing antique stores, we’re all for it.
