Why the constant calls for growth at any cost?March 13, 2020
To the editor:
Dubois Strong organization head Ed Cole said that “from an economic development standpoint, connectivity to highways and the ability to transport freight and transport people efficiently is huge,” when recently talking about the Mid-States Corridor.
Local governments and private donors contributed a total of $7 million for the corridor project’s ongoing environmental study.
Does this connectivity improve Dubois County's ranking in the state, unemployment, etc? Should it? Is it OK to ever be satisfied with being a stable community without the constant calls for growth at any cost?
Did the decision to spend $7 million fall on the shoulders of the entire community or a select few with economic motivations to move this project forward, largely without public scrutiny?
