Morning Star ... 8 Years Later

After 8 long and taxpayer-backed expensive years, demolition of properties purchased by the Union County Improvement Authority in connection with the failed Morning Star project is finally underway.

It has taken 8 years to purchase 13 lots and demolition has just started.  Would it be even possible for a private, self-funded developer to bear the cost and time of this project?  Seriously.

a private enterprise would've had to watch the bottom line. UCIA just pumps more money into projects (viable or not) cause their piggy bank is infinite.
