When will Moammar turn to improving commerce for locals? Everything the guy does is to bring more transients to town. It’s time to boot the guy out. First cut I’d make.
Chamber of commerce president Moe Ammar said the main reason the show — which attracts hundreds of participants and thousands of spectators — is in jeopardy is that an environmental impact report might be needed before it can be permitted to move to P.G.
“With all the requirements with getting a permit,” Ammar said, “it’s highly unlikely the event will happen this year.”
In 2008, the city council said it didn’t want the Concorso to move to town because of concerns about golf-course damage from cars, traffic and other issues. But with the city’s economy hurting because of the global downturn, Ammar believes the council would change its mind.
