If Mr. Sangster
represents the The Greensboro Economic Development Alliance (GEDA),
and the Alliance recieves taxpayer money,
and Mr. Sangster intends to promote taxpayer money for "Incentives",
like Roy Carroll's "Shovely Ready" proposal,
which Mr. Sangster appears to have recomended,
how are taxpayers not funding
what looks like a lobbyist selling the city on more debt?
"I talked to Sangster...about the possibility
of Greensboro and developer Roy Carroll partnering
to develop a 100-acre shovel-ready site in eastern Greensboro.
Has Mr. Sangster ever recieved compensation
from Mr. Carroll?
Is Mr. Sangster a "lobbyist"?
It was a presentation by Sangster
at a commercial real estate meeting in Greensboro this spring
that helped kick off the push to establish such a site,
said Dan Lynch, president of the Greensboro Economic Development Alliance.
Please provide all documentation and communications
which include "Sangster", from 1/1/2010.
The discussion Greensboro is currently having
about the decision to help publicly fund the development of a shovel-ready site
is one that many communities are having
as they compete for a smaller pool of large-scale projects,
Sangster said during a phone interview...
How did the Business Journal's Owen Covington
know to call Mr. Sangster?
Some communities are creating “certified sites”
that have some preparation work such as environmental studies completed
or infrastructure in place,
but stop short of being ready for a building permit, he said.
“I think it can be a differentiation
to have a pad-ready site with utilities and infrastructure in place,” Sangster said.
...Using public dollars to fund site development carries the risk of public outcry
if a shovel-ready site fails to attract a new development quickly, he said.
“It is taking a little bit of a chance,” he said.

Will Mr. Sangster
"provide education to economic development practitioners"
at the meeting?
Have any City Council Members recieved any free anything
from Mr. Sangster?
If Mr. Sangster represents someone other than GEDA,
please dislcose his clients.
If Mr. Sangster is a licenced real estate broker,
how is Mr. Sangster being and/or going to be compensated for what?
Does Mr. Sangster stand to recieve a % of the negotiated incentive
Does Mr. Sangster get compensated
if a deal and/or "sale" doesn't go through?
How was Mr. Sangster involved with the Caterpiller deal
in Winston Salem?
“What we do not have today are shovel-ready sites,
and that is big,” said Carroll, president of The Carroll Cos.
“We are unprepared for large job creators coming to the area
that want to build a new plant or new manufacturing facilities.”
Is this Correct?
Arn't there already 100 acre sites
supported by Greensboro taxpayer money?
Carroll began assembling the 850 acres
that make up Birch Creek eight years ago.
Initially, he envisioned it as a huge mixed-use development,
but a glut of housing in that part of the Triad and a lousy economy
have undermined those plans.
At the moment, the park stands empty.
Birch Creek, which is closer to Greensboro’s city limits, is another matter.
It is largely without infrastructure.
