As for his other points, it's important to note that environmental engineers (which Dr. Finch is not) have also seen the developers' plans and have reached the opposite conclusion as Dr. Finch.

So how uninformed is Dr. Finch...spewing falsehoods about property on South Willow that the City doesn't own? Hopefully this is already known to TDEC or they will jnquire for a response.

The site shows all activity and PDFS for support and complaints for the project. I'm assuming from Deborah Sam's emails she is working with Paddock and Finch for opposition to the project.

I drove by today and saw surveyors on site. I hope that's a good sign.

Does that appear to be a conflict of interest?
