Brookings Advocates for Small Business (BASB) is starting a petition to bring the voice of the Brookings community to the SD Board of Regents and let them know that the NW Quad construction is not Business As Usual.
BASB understands that a public/private partnership provides preferential treatment unfair to local businesses. BASB further recognizes that the public/private partnership proposed at the NW Quadrant will result in a loss of tax revenue negatively affecting K-12 eduction and city/county government funding, create unnecassary competition between government and private businesses, and result in either a reduction of services or an increase in taxes.
We strongly encourage the SD Board of Regents to oppose NW Quadrand project at SDSU in Brookings, SD.
