Friday July 22, 2007 | Thursday’s developments regarding the now infamous “Sunroad Building” were met with wishy-washy language by Sunroad that it will comply “at this time” with the stop work order and study its options in response to the “take it down to 160 feet or less” order.

It is time for Sunroad to return to its history of being a good corporate citizen, and just do the right thing. The handwriting is on the wall: everyone in the community, including the mayor, says take it down. Sunroad’s political and community goodwill are exhausted. Only a cooperative approach will allow it to ever return to the high road in the community’s eye. The sooner,the better. Otherwise, I predict Sunroad’s businesses will soon see informational picket lines urging consumers to take their business elsewhere.

Let’s face it, what if Sunroad prevails in court and shoves this building down the community’s throat. Will it then say it “won?” If so, at what cost?
