Developer guilty of the mounting trash and building material.
Town Board condones this mess.
Its been over four years now , and the Bella Vista Group keeps dumping. This is a tactic this developer uses to help persuade communities to let them have there way.
If they want to build on a certain location , they will purchase the property or put it under contract . If they meet resistance , then they let it decay or in this case - pile refuse on it. They create the eye soar so residents will complain .
In some cases they will have their friends make the complaints. Or they will even have a Town Board member publicly target the site. The Board member will act as though they are fighting blight or "Cleaning up the Eye Soar." In reality the board is helping this developer get what he wanted all along. They then spin it into being a good thing and everyone gets paid.
The Lancaster Town Board is fully aware of this game. They have refused to take any meaningful legal action against this developer .
This developer controls the Endorsements of the local conservative Party.
This developer has many jobs to offer in exchange for favors.
This developer can and does raise thousands of dollars for local Town , County and State Politicians.
So just hold on a bit longer , When Bella Vista and the Town Board feel the locals who stalled Walmart have suffered enough and the property gets filled enough - they will agree to clear and build on that location.
Just maybe while they are clearing the piles away , enough will just happen to be dozed into the area to bring it out of wetland or flood plain status.
Gee - isn't that convenient for the owners. Won't be the first time he got away with this or the last!
