A few days ago, City Councilman Bill Murray received a letter from an attorney representing the Citadel and Chapel Hills Malls. The attorney requested that the City offer the two malls the same incentives that they provided to Scheels Sporting Goods.
Attorneys for Bass Pro and other developers have also gone on record with their objections to the sweet deal the City made with Scheels.
If you aren’t aware of the $16 million, 25-year deal Scheels received from the taxpayers of Colorado Springs, check out our blog.
Will there be more demands or objections from other Colorado Springs retailers, or even the possibility of legal action? We believe it’s likely.
