But isn't that the idea? To gentrify the area, meaning the bail bonds won't be sticking around for much longer?

South has no buildings that can be used and the jail is a blight. But the City envisions the park here, not north, and envisions that this part of Riverfront will somehow bridge the park and downtown. It’s a worthy goal and if we see this part of Riverfront revedelop in a decade that would be success.
