Will City Council Actually Greenlight The Grove?

There may be some over-riding concerns about parking but on Tuesday the City Council may approve the re-zoning that will be necessary to allow Campus Crest Developments to build a student housing project at the site of the old Waterworks. The Tuscaloosa News has yet to cover one aspect of the story though, even though one of its reporters was given a stack of papers that was presented to the members of the Planning and Zoning Commission by someone during the public comments. There was page after page detailing the unsavory past of Campus Crest CEO Ted Rollins.

The Legal Schnauzer ran a story about CEO Ted Rollins:

How Will Alabama’s Crimson Tide Nation React To CEO Ted Rollins And His History As A Child Abuser?

How will Crimson Tide nation take to a corporate executive who is entering their environs with a documented history as a child abuser? How will that square with UA’s notion of family values?

We are about to find out because Charlotte-based Campus Crest Communities is seeking approval to build a student-housing complex near the University of Alabama campus. It will be known as The Grove at Tuscaloosa, and the 228-unit complex is planned for Fifth Street Northeast, at the site of the former Riverview Water Treatment plant.
