Secret negotiations have been going on between the City of Loveland and the McWhinney's for a longtime before the announcement could be made of Centerra's new downtown. But is it still Loveland?
The proposal is full of tax dollar incentives, waived fees and other "incentives" by the City of Loveland. Taxpayers who support the project are asking, "Why can't the McWhinneys finance this one themselves."
After amassing considerable personal wealth through developments where taxpayers carry the costs for the development for 25 years - people are wondering what is the benefit to Loveland and what will happen to the Old Downtown.
