Josh DodsonThis was zoned commercial. They zoning back to residential? There are houses for sale all over Seneca area, last thing need is a bunch of vacant homes like happened in Bentonville area. With no Wal-Mart coming that is that many less jobs. What is needed is the common industry. The city should look to but that property and start thinking about and industrial area while seeking industry and giving tax credits. A TIF could really help with the city. Until industry is built less revenue will come to the community. Without small businesses less industry comes to Seneca. The city needs to grow in a positive direction! People need to get involved. As former Chamber President, I would challenge all citizens to grt involved, go to meetings, get informed and help where you can!2 weeks ago
