Tolbert's New Plan

Apparently, Richard Tolbert and the Save Bannister group are struggling for their signatures. So much so that they are planning to change their tactics on trying to save the mall.

According to the article, Tolbert and the group are now going to try and get the title to the mall and get TIF funding to resurrect the mall. The mall's current owners will hopefully be persuaded by the city council to avoid this path at all cost. Should it come down to it, the city should only have to show the owners this article about Tolbert to see what the man can do. How Tolbert continues to view the mall as a viable option any more is beyond belief. Enclosed malls are dying in this country, people want to park right in front of the store they want to shop at, go in and leave. Hopes are that this is just a minor speed bump in the redevelopment of the area.
