BDDC Approves Contract With Monti

Tonight, the Bristol Downtown Development Corp. approved a long, detailed contract with Don Monti, president of Renaissance Downtowns.
The deal, which next goes to the city council for approval, gives Monti two years to come up with a concrete plan for the 17-acre, city-owned site in the heart of Bristol. It is largely empty now but was the place where the old mall once stood.
Councilors will take it up next week.
Read details of the deal in my story in The Bristol Press on Tuesday:


  1. There will never be anything there but crabgrass and broken glass.

  2. I disagree, but thanks for reading and for making a comment. I do appreciate it.

    If all of the manure wasted on blogs by anonymous posters was spread across the seventeen acres we could grow daisies.

    There are some people in Bristol that desire a better city and are willing to work for it.

    Those who choose to hide behind anonymous posts and denigrate the city should either try to make positive contributions or move to a city where they will be more happy.
