Scribner Place groundbreaking scheduled, opponents vow to “boo.”


Scribner Place clears last hurdle; Groundbreaking is set for Nov. 6, by Matt Batcheldor (Courier-Journal).

After four years of political wrangling, a groundbreaking date was set yesterday for New Albany’s downtown Scribner Place project.

It will be held from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Nov. 6 at the southwest corner of State and Main streets.

That’s a Monday, futurists. Lunch and a Progressive Pint at the Bistro afterwards?


In related news, New Albany’s congenital obstructionists have announced that they will gather at the Scribner Place job site for a mass self-immolation in protest of the project, the administration, and an uncooperative 21st century – and NA Confidential will be there, distributing a case of souvenir matchbooks.
