Last night, I took another look at the county commissioners' meeting to see if I could hash out their debate over the scenic corridor ordinance. Some things became clearer, but they still took way too much time bickering.

There was one item I had forgotten about: the decision to award $90,000 over four years to Transportation Systems, LLC for an expasion that will create 25 new jobs.

The expansion will involve a relocation to the old Brayton Furniture building on Swathmore Ave. I covered Brayton when I was working with Triad Business News. Brayton moved across the street into a newly-constructed building, and I followed what would happen to the old building before TBN shut down. It's sat empty for two years, and I'm glad another High Point company is going to make use of it.

This is a good example of infill development and should be encouraged, even if it means some help through economic incentives.
