Since the City appears to be doing nothing with the VanDuzee Street warehouse site, they might as well sell a chunk of it to Nancy Henry and Jake Johnson for business venture involving a brewery. I am not clear the whole nine acres is needed and there should be some performance assurances in any sales agreement, but these are good local people who want to do something. The same holds true for Sewall's Island, another site the city is sitting on.
In the case of both sites there was money spend on remediation or cleanup, but getting something happening is paramount.
