Gaslight Village Project

This topic came up in the Tupper Lake thread, and I think it deserves some attention on its own. Its both current and historical so I thought I would post it here along with the Tupper conversation.

There has been huge debate surrounding this project as well, and its interesting to note that when it was being debated for a decade it was just as much of a hot potato as the Tupper project, maybe even more. Its also interesting to note that in the end when approval was given for the project its opponents had almost the exact same thing to say as the opponents to the Tupper project. The whole "I hope it doesn't happen, but don't worry they will never get any money to move it forward anyhow." idea.

I'm not going to write out a history of the property when I can just give you links to get you up to speed real quick.
