Charles Pointe - 2005

The Exponent Telegram Sunday, December 4, 2005 By Jim Fisher – Metro Editor CLARKSBURG - Between major steps forward this summer by the developers of Charles Pointe and Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling clearing the way for a new United Hospital Center, Bridgeport could see a major boom over the next decade or more. "Anytime you have an investment that will approach $200 million and place jobs in a community, that becomes an economic engine," said Bridgeport Mayor Jim Christie, noting that the UHC jobs are not really new but still will add to Bridgeport’s economy. The true boost will be from ancillary businesses supporting UHC, since the hospital itself will not pay business and occupation taxes.
Since there are a number of non-profit entities that will use the center, Collins (in this case bond counsel for the issuing bank) questioned whether government or 501 (c) 3 bonds should be issued. If the nonprofit bonds are to be issued, the hearing is neccessary, said Jim Christie of Comvest, the Bridgeport-based financial firm handling the sale.

The stone bridge was completed about two years ago, but the road was not finished, Bridgeport Mayor Jim Christie said.
"While building that road, the contractor hit rock he wasn't expecting, and then winter hit, putting that project about a year behind," Christie said. Completion of Stonebridge Drive will make access easier for residents, make it more attractive for potential buyers and more convenient for residents on the other end of Worthington Drive. "That street is pretty narrow and as more houses have been built, the traffic has increased, and that will continue to grow as more houses are complete," Christie said. "We are at a record low for the number of houses available on the market in Bridgeport," Christie said. Increasing the amount of residential space in Bridgeport will create additional revenue for the city by increasing the tax base, Christie said.

Bridgeport Mayor Jim Christie said he is looking forward to the new complex because it will supply the city with additional tax revenue and give local residents more shopping choices.
"Any time we bring business to Bridgeport, it's going to enhance our bottom line ... but it will also provide alternative shopping that we don't have," Christie added.

Bridgeport Mayor Jim Christie said the economic activity that has taken place to this date has been tremendous.
"With the new housing, a new 96-unit apartment complex completed and B&O tax revenue from various construction jobs on the site has made a tremendous economic impact on the city," Christie said.

Bridgeport Mayor Jim Christie believes hundreds of people from throughout the area will want to see the new complex."
"Assuming good weather, I'm predicting 1,000-1,500 people since the opening day for Little League follows our grand opening," Christie said. Because of the overflow crowd, the city will offer shuttle rides from the North Central West Virginia Airport from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Gates will open at 11:30 a.m. and concessions will be available beginning at noon. "I encourage people from all over the county to come early, park at the airport and ride the shuttle because of parking," Christie said. Christie agrees that it is one of the largest city projects ever. "This is something we've been working on for about three to four years. It was a very ambitious project and something that's been needed for a long time by the community," he said. "It provides opportunities that we have just not had in the past." Besides additional fields for the kids to practice, there will be the economic opportunity of attracting travel teams in the spring, summer and fall, Christie said. "That will bring people here for several days and create economic opportunity that today does not exist," he said."Other local teams are talking to us about playing there.
