GUEST COLUMN: Krystal, mall hold-ups part of a pattern

Published: Monday, June 3, 2013 at 11:31 AM.

Since when is it the responsibility of the business owners to pay for the city’s lack of a traffic management plan? Highway 85 should have been widened to six lanes like Fort Walton Beach and Niceville years ago. Krystal will not make the afternoon parking lot any worse.

Just like the hold-up on the new mall project — same game, different name.

See a pattern here, people?

I don't know about you, but I'd rather spend my money here than have to drive to Destin.

Based on the city of Crestview's history over the last 25 years, I'm willing to bet my next paycheck we don't get the Krystal or the mall.

Everyone needs to go to the workshop the city is having at 4 p.m. June 4 at City Hall and voice your support for these businesses.

If we do not push for it folks, it won't happen!
