Local tax dollars subsidizing a Starbucks (like they need help) to be located within blocks of THREE local coffee business who didn't receive any such subsidies, benefits or incentives...
I'm not a City of Missoula resident/voter (work in Missoula but reside outside city limits), but I hope that my friends who are will scream bloody murder over this. This is not right, not by a long shot.
I have never patronized a Starbucks and am not going to start now (or ever). I do enjoy a lattee from the local coffee purveyors now and then and will continue to do so, supporting fine local businesses.
