  1. Kendrick is another shady government official that is nothing more than another Hardie Davis..he’s already done the bait and switch in the tax commissioners office and this pie dream is more of the same..

    • Approximately a year ago I purchased a 53,000 piece of property .6 Acres on Deans Bridge Road closest house to the mall. Personally I could do without the noise and the lights. Certainly Augusta Richmond County could use the additional tax base. I wonder when did the Republican Party do a feasibility study, or a needs assessment south of the Gordon Highway. In my opinion we don’t need a James Brown Arena between railroad tracks and adjacent to a oil/gas distributorship!

  2. Me thinks the Economic Development Authority has consumed a couple too many ‘shrooms. Notice the “SPIN” Kendrick and Wray are trying to sell !!! The “Meetings” must’ve been ZOOM meetings, since Cardinale has YET to send a representative to ANY meeting, actually held in person, in Augusta, OR at the Regency Mall site.

  3. Georgia Code Title 22. Eminent Domain § 22-1-9 Condemn it, buy it for fair market value, and sell it to one or more developers who will put their money where there mouth is. Keep Kendrick, the Augusta Economic Development Authority, and the commissioners out of the deal to the maximum extent possible.
