The question---Why did Whole Foods buy land next to a toxic waterway?---was the one question that the Whole Foods team did not prepare for with dismissive answers for the community.The long pause and answer that was offered---that the decision was made by a predecessor---was a dismissive yet revealing answer.No one at Whole Foods will take responsibility for the mess that Whole Foods finds themselves in with this site! Their team at this meeting has been given the job to get the zoning plans approved—what ever that takes. They will be the predecessors to the Whole Foods team that will have to deal with the local flooding that will contain all matters of sewage debris (especially E. coli with some nasty numbers after it). The successors will face the real problems. And when the Community Board calls a meeting to ask why cars can't get up and down 3rd street, or even in and out of the store, the next Whole Foods team can answer that it is all due to decisions made by their predecessors.
