Time to Move

Is it time for the Freestore to move?
Their mad desire to have acres of parking coupled with growing non metro poverty and the city of Cincinnati trying to increase it's tax base to help pay for welfare, it would seem so. Their strategy of buying nearby buildings, letting them go to hell & then demolishing them for surface parking for their auto owning poverty stricken clientele seems irrational and not in lune with the best interests of the city.
Their latest target is 1606 & 1608 Walnut, purchased 7 years go & left to decay.
The Freestore has applied for a Certificate of Appropriateness to demolish these structures for a surface parking lot. The properties are located within the Over-the-Rhine Historic District.
A pre-hearing conference has been set for 1/21/14 at 9:30 A.M. in Suite 720, Centennial Plaza Two, 805 Central Avenue to provide interested parties with an opportunity to review the project and to ask questions prior to the hearing on 1/27/14.
Maybe it's time to move to a location more befitting their enterprise. Cincinnati Mall?
