Description

Riverfront Times reports on controversies surrounding the prospective development of 438 acres of prime North County land, recently bought by the Saint Louis Airport. "Two developers, three cities, the airport and the county are engaged in a dogfight ... and there's plenty of sleaze to go around," the newspaper reports. The story reveals that neither of the 400-million development game participants cares about the survival of Kinloch, a little town with inexperienced administration and small budget, which was the previous owner of the land. The reporter follows the litigation process started by Kinloch, claiming that the airport might have misrepresented the reasons for the buyout of the land to the FAA.
