One opposing voice is cited and then dismissed. Quoted is North St. Louis resident Sheila Rendon, who, according to the AP story has a "This Home Is Not for Sale" sign in her window. "He starts to buy property; he lets it deteriorate; people feel hopeless; they sell," said Rendon. The story recognizes the skepticism and then rely's on McKee's pledge to not use eminent domain as well as Barb Geisman, the city's Executive Director for Development, to invalidate the concern.
As you may expect, the mainstream story has a mainstream message: a big, exciting proposal has been offered, the developer means well, not all big proposals have worked in the past, someone objects, others trump the objection.
