Millard Refrigeration
Millard Refrigeration is an multiphase industrial/office complex located in the City of Streetsboro, Ohio. Encompassing a total of 27.6 acres, improvements include 10.5 acres of warehouse, 2 story office building totaling 12,800 square feet, approximately 3.81 acres of parking lot infrastructure and fully engineered site utilities.

How funny is this report out of Charleston, South Carolina? As - if our city had a hit squad out on all other cities. Perhaps Charleston would swap some of that tourist money for a warehouse or two. Frankly Jacksonville has lots of warehouses, highways and railroad tracks, just how much is enough? Anyway, we are hearing the same story about Charleston, doing the same thing, from our end. Besides talking about Cold Fronts, Charleston is way colder. Now THAT is funny.

Chilling effect
Charleston apparently was one of at least two Southeast port cities to be frozen out of a possible $25.5 million investment by a refrigerated warehouse operator.
According to recent reports out of northern Florida, Jacksonville officials have set the wheels in motion to provide $230,000 in incentives to nail down the deal with Millard Refrigerated Services of Omaha, Neb. The first phase of the 185,000-square-foot warehouse project would create 92 jobs by 2010, paying an average salary of more than $37,000.
In addition to Jacksonville and Charleston, Millard, a 45-year-old family-owned international warehouse and distribution company, had Savannah on it short list. As with most economic-development deals that involve a stop at the taxpayer trough, this one was kept hush-hush and still hasn't been officially announced. Fittingly, the assigned code name is "Project Coldfront."

The arguments rage to this date, "Should have never been built," "waste of taxpayer money," "Doesn't go anywhere," "Nobody rides it..." etc. Bottom line is we have it, and it is finally showing signs of life. Simple extensions to the Stadium, San Marco, and the area of Blue Cross in North Riverside would turn this little train around. Addition of Park and Ride garages and multimodal transit terminals at the end points would bring on the crowds. The video must have been shot on a Sunday Morning, as downtown is certainly as packed with life as any other major City on weekdays. Jacksonville is a city of Bikes, joggers, walkers, buses and cars, one almost wonders how the photographer managed to find this quiet moment.
