  06/26/06  The Urban Market --- Dallas

The "Urban Market" of downtown Dallas should be renamed the "City Of Dallas Charity Market".

    A privately owned business MUST be able to pay its overhead and make a profit, or close up.  The taxpayers of Dallas cannot continue to pay for "pipe dreams" of others who are unable to operate a business at break even or at a profit. 

    It does not matter if the market had planned that other supporting housing units would provide it the necessary customers needed to be successful.  The bottom line is that the overall scheme did not work due to poor planning of many, and it is now time for the Urban Market to borrow operating capital on its own to continue operation, or close the doors.  
 
  If  housing unit owners are to benefit from the presence of the market, then perhaps they should subsidize the grocery operation.  Taxpayers from remote portions of Dallas should not have to pay for the Downtown market any more than they should have to support other privately operated elements of a community,  such as private medical facilities or animal grooming facilities.

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
